The Ectothiorhodospiraceae are a family of purple sulfur bacteria, distinguished by producing sulfur globules outside of their cells.[1] The cells are rod-shaped, vibrioid or spirilla and are able to move by using flagella. In general, they are marine and prefer anaerobic conditions.[1] Like all purple sulfur bacteria, they are capable of photosynthesis.
