Bacilli specifically refers to a taxonomic class of bacteria. It includes two orders, Bacillales and Lactobacillales, which contain several well-known pathogens like Bacillus anthracis (the cause of anthrax), Streptococcus, and Staphylococcus. All members of Class Bacilli are gram-positive. For the science of classifying living things, see alpha taxonomy. ...

== Insert non-formatted text here == or Genus Bacillus. Thus, it does not necessarily imply a similar group of characteristics. Not all members of Class Bacilli are rod-shaped (''[[Staphylococcus]]'' is spherical), and many other rod-shaped bacteria exist that do not fall within that class (''[[Clostridium]]'' is rod-shaped but very different taxonomically). Moreover, the general term "bacillus" does not necessarily indicate the [[Gram-positive]] staining common to Class Bacilli. For example ''[[E. coli]]'' is a rod-shaped bacteria that could therefore be described as "a bacillus", but it stains [[Gram-negative]] and does not belong to Genus Bacillus or Class Bacilli. Some [[microbiologist]]s have forsaken the general "bacillus" term because of the confusion it can create. <847478> [[Category:Firmicutes]] {{bacteria-stub}} [[de:Bacilli]] [[es:Bacilli]] [[fr:Bacilli]] [[it:Bacilli]] [[lt:Bacilos]] [[nl:Bacillen]] [[fi:Basillit]] [[sv:Bacilli]] [[zh:芽孢桿菌綱]]

Bacilli - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (132 words)
The term bacilli (singular bacillus) is used to refer to any rod-shaped bacteria.
As a formal taxon, the Bacilli (capitalized) are a class of Firmicutes, including Bacillus and various other Gram-positive bacteria, such as Listeria.
The Bacilli are distinguished from the Clostridia by aerobic respiration.
THE MERCK MANUAL, Sec. 6, Ch. 73, Pneumonia (457 words)
Gram-negative bacilli colonize the upper airways in patients who have serious underlying diseases with a frequency directly correlated with disease severity.
Gram-negative bacilli should be suspected in a patient with pneumonia who is in one of the risk categories noted above, especially with neutropenia or nosocomial pneumonia.
Gram stain of sputum usually shows numerous gram-negative bacilli; however, distinguishing the various species and genera on the basis of morphologic characteristics is impossible.
