Taxonomy

Description
The genus is defined by relative evolutionary divergence (RED) and phylogenomic analysis as a monophyletic group.  Strictly anaerobic and chemoheterotrophic. Cells are cocci occurring singly. Cells does not have cell wall. No characteristic fluorescence of methanogens under UV light due to lack of F420. Utilize methanol or methylamines only in combination with H2 as substrates for methanogenesis.
Classification
