Myxobacteria

Myxobacteria

(Science: bacteria) group of gram-negative bacteria, found mainly in soil.

They are nonflagellated with flexible cell walls. They show a gliding motility, moving over solid surfaces leaving a layer of slime.

at some stage in their growth the cells of this group swarm together and form fruiting bodies and spores in a fashion similar to the slime moulds.
