Thermosporothrix hazakensis gen. nov., sp. nov., isolated from compost, description of Thermosporotrichaceae fam. nov. within the class Ktedonobacteria Cavaletti et al. 2007 and emended description
An aerobic, thermophilic, Gram-stain-positive, spore-forming bacterium that formed branched vegetative and aerial mycelia was isolated from compost and it is proposed that SK20-1T represents a novel genus and species, Thermosporothrix hazakensis gen. nov., within the new familyThermosporotrichaceae fam.nov.
Sphingobacterium thermophilum sp. nov., of the phylum Bacteroidetes, isolated from compost.
According to the phenotypic and genotypic characteristics, strain CKTN2(T) represents a novel species of the genus Sphingobacterium, for which the name SphingOBacterium thermophilum sp.

Two thermophilic, Gram-stain-positive, sporulating bacterial strains, which formed branched vegetative and aerial mycelia, were isolated from fallen leaves sampled from geothermal soils and
Thermasporomyces composti gen. nov., sp. nov., a thermophilic actinomycete isolated from compost.
The chemotaxonomic and phenotypic characteristics of strain I3(T) differed in some respects from those of members of the genus Actinopolymorpha, the most closely related genus.
Thermovum composti gen. nov., sp. nov., an alphaproteobacterium from compost.
Strain Nis3(T) is considered to represent a novel species of a new genus in the family Phyllobacteriaceae, for which the name Thermovum composti gen. nov., sp.
Diversity of Ktedonobacteria with Actinomycetes-Like Morphology in Terrestrial Environments
The results suggest that unknown diverse Ktedonobacteria inhabit common environments including forests, gardens, and sand at low abundances, as well as extreme environments such as geothermal areas.
Genome Features and Secondary Metabolites Biosynthetic Potential of the Class Ktedonobacteria
This study observed the existence of a putative “megaplasmid,” multiple copies of ribosomal RNA operons, and high ratio of hypothetical proteins with unknown functions in the class Ktedonobacteria, and screening of bioactive compounds from representative Kted onobacteria strains resulted in the identification of broad antimicrobial activities against both Gram-positive and Gram-negative tested bacterial strains.
Dictyobacter vulcani sp. nov., belonging to the class Ktedonobacteria, isolated from soil of the Mt Zao volcano.
An aerobic, Gram-stain-positive, mesophilic Ktedonobacteria strain, W12T, was isolated from soil of the Mt Zao volcano in Miyagi, Japan and indicated that it represents a novel species in the genus Dictyobacter.
A life cycle of branched aerial mycelium- and multiple budding spore-forming bacterium Thermosporothrix hazakensis belonging to the phylum Chloroflexi.
The strain SK20-1(T) belonging to the phylum Chloroflexi with a life cycle including a novel prokaryotic sporulation mode could be a model microbe for cellular differentiation with multiple budding spore formation.
