General Information: This organism produces bacteriochlorophyll a and c under oxic conditions and represents a new group of photosynthetic bacteria. The only known chlorophototroph in the phylum Acidobacteria. Aerobic photoheterotroph that lacks the ability to synthesize several essential nutrients. Naturally inhabits microbial mats of alkaline siliceous hot springs in Yellowstone National Park.
