Sporomusa is a genus of Firmicutes bacteria classified within the class Negativicutes.[1] [2]

Further examination of members of this clade suggest that this group are actually members of the Clostridia.[3]


The currently accepted taxonomy is based on the List of Prokaryotic names with Standing in Nomenclature (LSPN) [1][2] and the phylogeny is based on 16S rRNA-based LTP release 111 by The All-Species Living Tree Project [4]
