  • Spirochaete
    Spirochaetes English pronunciation: /ˈspʌɪrə(ʊ)kiːt/ (also spelled spirochetes) belong to a phylum of distinctive diderm (double-membrane) bacteria, most of which have long, helically coiled (corkscrew-shaped or spiraled, hence the name) cells.
  • Chloroflexi (phylum)
    The Chloroflexi or Chlorobacteria are a phylum of bacteria containing isolates with a diversity of phenotypes including members that are aerobic thermophiles, which use oxygen and grow well in high temperatures, anoxygenic phototrophs, which use light for photosynthesis (green non-sulfur bacteria), and anaerobic halorespirers, which uses halogenated organics (such as the toxic chlorinated ethenes and polychlorinated biphenyls) as energy sources.
  • Synergistetes
    The Synergistetes is a recently recognized phylum of anaerobic bacteria that show Gram-negative staining and have rod/vibrioid cell shape.
  • Lentisphaerae
    Lentisphaerae is a phylum of bacteria closely related to Chlamydiae and Verrucomicrobia.
  • Elusimicrobia
    The phylum Elusimicrobia, previously known as "Termite Group 1", has been shown to be widespread in different ecosystems like marine environment, sewage sludge, contaminated sites and soils.
  • Thermodesulfobacteria
    The Thermodesulfobacteria are a phylum of thermophilic sulfate-reducing bacteria.
  • Nitrospirae
    Nitrospirae is a phylum of bacteria.
  • Thermotogae
    Thermotogae is a phylum of the domain "Bacteria".
  • Gemmatimonadetes
    The Gemmatimonadetes are a phylum of bacteria created for the type species Gemmatimonas aurantiaca.
  • Halorhodospira halophila
    Halorhodospira halophila is a species of Halorhodospira distinguished by its ability to grow optimally in an environment of 15-20% salinity.
  • Fibrobacteres
    Fibrobacteres is a small bacterial phylum which includes many of the major rumen bacteria, allowing for the degradation of plant-based cellulose in ruminant animals.
  • Halanaerobium hydrogenoformans
    Halanaerobium hydrogeninformans is alkaliphilic bacterium that capable of biohydrogen production at (pH 11 and 7% (w/v) sodium chloride salts) and 33˚c, it commonly found in haloalkaline lakes.
  • Melainabacteria
    The name Melainabacteria is derived from the title of the "Greek nymph of dark waters" and is new phylum related to Cyanobacteria.
  • Planctobacteria
    Planctobacteria is a taxon created by Cavalier-Smith, specifically a division (phylum).
  • Fusobacteria
    Fusobacteria are obligately anaerobic non-sporeforming Gram-negative bacilli.
  • Armatimonadetes
    Armatimonadetes is a phylum of gram-negative bacteria.
  • Aquificae
    The Aquificae phylum is a diverse collection of bacteria that live in harsh environmental settings.
