Description

The genus Methanolinea, is comprised of hydrogenotrophic methanogenic Archaea, which utilise H2/CO2 and formate for growth and methane production, under strictly anaerobic conditions 2 3. Cells appear rod shaped in pure culture, which can often form multicellular filaments 2 3. For M. mesophila, coccoid cells are also observed 3. Currently, no in situ information has been determined for Methanolinea in digester sludge.
