The Selenomonadales are the only order of bacteria within the class Negativicutes; unlike most other members of Firmicutes, they are Gram-negative. The phylogeny of this order was determined by 16S rRNA comparisons.[1] Samples of bacterial strains within this order have been isolated from the root canals of healthy human teeth. [2]
