Sphaerobacter thermophilus Demharter et al. 1989

Sphaerobacter is a genus of bacteria. When originally described it was placed in its own subclass (Spahaerobacteridae) within the class Actinobacteria. Subsequently, phylogenetic studies have now placed it in its own order Sphaerobacterales within the phylum Chloroflexi.[1][2] Up to now there is only one species of this genus known (Sphaerobacter thermophilus).[3]
