Taxonomy

Description
Kuo, Stephens, 2010: Coccoid to rod shaped, nonmotile, obligately intracellular bacteria, 0.35–4 μm. Cells show a developmental cycle with morphologically distinct stages and grow within host-derived vacuoles. Organisms naturally infect arthropods and are differentiated from all other chlamydiae by the rod-shaped elementary body, which has a five-layer cell wall and shows one or two electron-translucent oblong structures in the cytoplasm. The genus Rhabdochlamydia is based on the description of “Candidatus Rhabdochlamydia porcellionis” and Rhabdochlamydia crassificans (Corsaro et al., 2007; Kostanjšek et al., 2004).
