Family I. Victivallaceae fam. nov.
The family comprises the genus Victivallis and uncultured 16S rRNA genes from mainly anaerobic environments that branch within the phylum Lenlisphaerae. Clones have been retrieved from the intestinal contents of humans, dugongs, turkeys, and termites, as well as anaerobic digesters and wastewater. The delineation of the family is primarily based on phylogenetic information from 16S rRNA sequences.
