Chlorobium phaeobacteroides nov. spec. and C. phaeovibrioides nov. spec., two new species of the green sulfur bacteria


Two new species are described which comprise of the brown-colored rod-shaped and vibrio-shaped forms of the phototrophic green sulfur bacteria. In nature they occur at greater depths in lakes and ponds than the green-colored forms.
