Family

In taxonomy, the Methanopyrales are an order of microbes within the class methanopyri.[1]

It contains only one family, Methanopyraceae, one genus, Methanopyrus, and one species, Methanopyrus kandleri.[2] This species is chemolithoautotrophic and its cells are bacillus in form. It grows comfortably at temperatures of 98 °C and can survice at tempturatures as high as 110 °C, making it the most thermophilic known methanogen. They live in hydrothermal vents.[3] They are similar to Methanobacteriales, but unlike other methanogenic archaea, their cell walls contain pseudomurein.[4]
