Class I. Lentisphaeria class. nov.
The class Lentisphaeria encompasses bacteria and related 16S rRNA gene sequences mainly from marine habitats, freshwater habitats, anaerobic digesters, and vertebrate feces. It contains the orders Lentisphaerales and Victivallales in the phylum Lentisphaeria and is currently represented only by the genera Lentisphaerae and Victivallis. The delineation of the class is primarily determined based on phylogenetic information of 16S rRNA sequences.
