Abstract

The phylum Lentisphaerae is defined by phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences of cultured strains from seawater and human feces and environmental clone sequences retrieved mainly from marine habitats, freshwater habitats, anaerobic digesters, and vertebrate feces. The phylum includes two bacterial genera, Lentisphaera and Victivallis, both of which are chemo-organotrophic cocci with a Gram-negative cell structure. Saccharolytic, only able to use mono- and di-­saccharides, sugar alcohols, or sugar acids. Both produce extracellular slime material.
