NITROSPIRAE is a phylum of bacteria. It contains only one class, NITROSPIRA, which itself contains one order (NITROSPIRALES) and one family (NITROSPIRACEAE). It includes multiple genera, such as _ Nitrospira _, the largest. The first member of this phylum, _ Nitrospira marina _, was discovered in 1985. The second member, _ Nitrospira moscoviensis _, was discovered in 1995.
