Lentisphaerae is a phylum of bacteria closely related to Chlamydiae and Verrucomicrobia.[1][2]

It includes two monotypic orders Lentisphaerales and Victivallales. Phylum members can be aerobic or anaerobic and fall under two distinct phenotypes. One consists of terrestrial gut microbiota from mammals and birds. The other phenotype includes marine micro-organisms: sequences from fish and coral microbiomes and marine sediment.

Taxonomy[edit]

The currently accepted taxonomy is based on the List of Prokaryotic names with Standing in Nomenclature (LSPN)[4] and the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI).[5]

Notes:
♠ Strain found at the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) but not listed in the List of Prokaryotic names with Standing in Nomenclature (LPSN)
