Syntrophomonadaceae

Thermanaerovibrio acidaminovorans, from Chovatia et al. (2009).

Belongs within: Firmicutes.

The Syntrophomonadaceae are a group of anaerobic bacteria that commonly grow in association with methanogens. They obtain energy through the oxidation of carboxylic acids, normally producing hydrogen or formate as a waste product which is then utilised by their methanogenic symbiotes.
