Sphaerobacter

provided by wikipedia EN

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] The closest related cultivated organism to S. Thermophilus is the Thermomicrobium Roseum and has an 87% sequence similarity which indicates that S. Thermophilus is one of the most isolated bacterial species.[4]
