The Holosporaceae are a family of bacteria, included in the order Rickettsiales. The member Holospora is an intracellular parasite found in the unicellular protozoa Paramecium.[1]

The genera Caedibacter, Holospora, Lyticum, Odyssella, Pseudocaedibacter, Pseudolyticum and Tectibacter are Incertae sedis.[1]

Genome[edit]

Draft genomes of Odyssella thessalonicensis [2] and three Holospora species [3] were sequenced.
