Here, we describe the first genome sequences of the Anaerolineae from a sulfidic environment, expanding the environmental distribution of sequenced Anaerolineae. These genomes represent basal Anaerolineae lineages, branching soon after the divergence of the sister class “Candidatus Thermofonsia,” expanding our understanding of the metabolic evolution of this group.
