Solobacterium moorei is a bacterium that has been identified as a contributor to halitosis.[2] It is a gram-negative anaerobic bacillus, [3] erroneously known as Bulleidia moorei, in the family Erysipelotrichaceae of the order Erysipelotrichales.[4][4] This particular strain was identified by Kageyama and Benno in 2000, previously an unclassified Clostridium group RCA59.[5]
