Phylogenetic tree highlighting the position of A. paucivorans GLU-3T relative to the other type strains within the family Synergistaceae. The tree was inferred from 1,347 aligned characters [4,5] of the 16S rRNA gene sequence under the maximum likelihood criterion  and rooted in accordance with the current taxonomy. The branches are scaled in terms of the expected number of substitutions per site. Numbers above branches are support values from 1,000 bootstrap replicates  if larger than 60%. Lineages with type strain genome sequencing projects registered in GOLD  are shown in blue, published genomes in bold [3,9,10].
