Abstract
A novel obligately anaerobic, thermophilic and formate-utilizing bacterium K32T was isolated from Shengli oilfield of China. Cells were straight rods (0.4–0.8 µm × 2.5–8.0 µm), Gram-stain-positive, non-spore-forming and slightly motile. Optimum growth occurred with pH of 7 and 0.5 g l–1 NaCl under temperature of 55–60 °C. Nitrate could be reduced into nitrite, syntrophic formate oxidation to methane and carbon dioxide occurred when co-culturing strain K32T and

Abstract
A novel Gram-stain-positive, rod shaped and anaerobic bacterium, designated as W6T, was isolated from Shengli oilfield in China. Strain W6T was observed to grow from 20 to 45 °C with pH 6.5–9.0 (optimally at 40 °C and pH of 7.5) and without addition of NaCl. The major cellular fatty acids were iso-C15 : 0 (29.1%), C14 : 0 (27.0%) and C16 : 0 (12.2%), and the main polar lipids were lipids (L) and aminolipids (AL). The DNA G+C content is 42.9 mol%. Based on 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis, strain
