Taxonomy

Description
A genus of Rhabdochlamydiaceae bacteria. The type species was identified though the NCBI nr database with bait sequences from other Rhabdochlamydiaceae. Genus status was established on the basis of sharing <65% Average Amino-acid Identity (AAI) with any other Rhabdochlamydiaceae bacteria, as well as phylogenetic analysis of single copy core amino acids from 112 Chlamydiae bacteria.  Analysis using the GTDB-tk pipeline assigned the type genome to an unnamed Rhabdochlamydiaceae genus.
