Description

Strictly anaerobic, methanogenic Archaea. Methane is produced by the reduction of methanol or methylamines with hydrogen as electron donor 3 4. M. luminyensis is the only member of this order that grows in pure culture. In axenic culture, cells occur as single cocci 3. The in situ physiology of Methanomassiliicoccus in anaerobic digesters has not been determined.
