The Chloroflexi are a group of bacteria that produce energy through photosynthesis. They make up the bulk of the filamentous anoxygenic phototrophs (formerly known as green non-sulfur bacteria), though some are classified separately as the Thermomicrobia. They are named for their green pigment, usually found in photosynthetic bodies called chlorosomes.

Chloroflexi are typically filamentous, and can move about through bacterial gliding. They are facultatively aerobic, but do not produce oxygen during photosynthesis, and have a different method of carbon fixation (photoheterotrophy) than other photosynthetic bacteria. Phylogenetic trees indicate that they had a separate origin. Bacterial gliding is a process whereby a bacterium can move under its own power. ... Aerobic and anaerobic bacteria can be identified by growning them in liquid culture: 1: Obligate aerobic bacteria gather at the top of the test tube in order to absorb maximal amount of oxygen. ... Photoheterotroph Photoheterotrophs are organisms which use light for energy, but cannot use carbon dioxide as their sole carbon source. ... A phylogenetic tree, also called an evolutionary tree or a tree of life, is a tree showing the evolutionary interrelationships among various species or other entities that are believed to have a common ancestor. ...
