The Erysipelotrichia are a subclass of bacteria of the phylum Firmicutes. Species of this subclass are known to be common in the gut microbiome, as they have been isolated from swine manure[1] and increase in composition of the mouse gut microbiome for mice switched to diets high in fat.[2]


The currently accepted taxonomy is based on the List of Prokaryotic names with Standing in Nomenclature (LSPN)[3][4] and the phylogeny is based on 16S rRNA-based LTP release 111 by 'The All-Species Living Tree' Project.[5]
