Limnothrix is a genus of Bacteria in the family Pseudanabaenaceae. It is a photoautotrophic

  • URI: http://eol.org/schema/terms/photoautotrophy
  • Definition: Deriving energy from light sources. In practice, taxa containing plastids and photosynthetic pigments, but with no evidence for consumption of organic particles or prey, are considered to be photoautotrophic.
