The recently discovered heliobacteria are the only Gram-pos-
itive photosynthetic bacteria that have been cultured. One of the
unique features of heliobacteria is that they have properties of
both the photosynthetic green sulfur bacteria (containing the
type I reaction center) and Clostridia (forming heat-resistant
endospores). Most of the previous studies of heliobacteria,
