Phylogenetic tree highlighting the position of F. balearica PATT relative to the type strains of the other species within the family Ferrimonadaceae and to the type of the neighboring family Psychromonadaceae. The trees were inferred from 1,449 aligned characters [10,11] of the 16S rRNA gene sequence under the maximum likelihood criterion  and rooted with the type strain of the order Alteromonadaceae. The branches are scaled in terms of the expected number of substitutions per site. Numbers above branches are support values from 650 bootstrap replicates  if larger than 60%. Lineages with type strain genome sequencing projects registered in GOLD  are shown in blue, published genomes in bold (CP000510) .
