Abstract

The order Lentisphaerales encompasses bacteria and related 16S rRNA gene sequences (detected by cultivation-independent methods and retrieved from pelagic marine habitats) within the phylum Lentisphaerae. The order comprises two strains of the genus Lentisphaera. The delineation of the order is primarily determined based on phylogenetic information of 16S rRNA sequences.
