Phylum BIX. Deferribacteres phy. nov.
The phylum Deferribacteres is a distinct lineage within the Bacteria based on phylogenetic analysis of 16S rDNA sequences. At present the members of this phylum are organized into a single class, order, and family. The relationships within the phylum may, however, be more distant and warrant further subdivision in the future. Chemoorganotrophic heterotrophs that respire anaerobically with terminal electron acceptors including Fe (II), Mn(IV), S0, Co(III), and nitrate. Placement of one genus, Synergistes, is provisional.
