Taxonomy

Description
Filamentous bacteria of centimeter length that inhabit the surface of brackish/intertidal sediment and conduct electrons from sulfide-oxidizing cells to oxygen-reducing cells. Gram-negative, width of individual cells is 1-2 µm. Can assimilate acetate but not propionate; CO2 fixation via the Wood-Ljungdahl pathway. Contains c-type cytochromes, type IV pili (PilA) and Na+antiporters. Polyphosphate and polyglucose storage. Distinguishable by morphology and genome.
Notes
Originally described as Ca. Electronema halotolerans by Sereika et al. 2023.
Proposed as valid species under the SeqCode by Plum-Jensen et al. in revision.
