Scientific classification
Domain: Bacteria
Phylum: Actinobacteria
Class: Thermoleophilia

The Thermoleophilia are a newly proposed class of Actinobacteria that was created from the splitting of the Rubrobacteridae, due to its phylogenetic branching order.[1][2]


The phylogeny is based on 16S rRNA-based LTP release 123 by 'The All-Species Living Tree' Project.[1]
