Topic: Achromatium oxaliferum freshwater bacterium
Please can you add
Achromatium oxaliferum Schewiakoff, 1893
I do not have a direct reference for the UK except
WEST, G. S., and B. M. GRIFFITHS. “The Lime-Sulphur Bacteria of the Genus Hillhousia.” Annals of Botany, vol. 27, no. 105, 1913, pp. 83–91.
According to NCBI Hillhousia mirabilis is a heterotypic synonym of Achromatium oxaliferum (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/Taxonomy/B … i?id=44938).
There are also references to populations in freshwater habitats in the north of England in:
Gray ND, Howarth R, Rowan A, Pickup RW, Jones JG, Head IM. Natural communities of Achromatium oxaliferum comprise genetically, morphologically, and ecologically distinct subpopulations. Appl Environ Microbiol. 1999;65(11):5089-5099. doi:10.1128/AEM.65.11.5089-5099.1999
