General Information: Isolation: Surface water; Temp: Mesophile; Habitat: Fresh water, Marine; Isolation: surface water. Planctomyces limnophilus is a member of the order Planctomycetales, a group of budding mostly aquatic microorganisms lacking peptidoglycan and representing a phylogenetically distinct lineage within the domain Bacteria. The planctomycetes share a number of morphological features, having spherical or ovoid cells which bear crateriform structures and, in some cases, nonprosthecate appendages. The is the type strain and was isolated from the surface waters of a German lake.
