1 “previously cultured” indicates phylotypes with 18S rRNA sequences that are 100% similar to that of a previously isolated culture, “previously observed but not cultured” indicates phylotypes with 18S rRNA sequences that are 100% similar to that of a sequence detected in the environment but for which no culture existed prior to this work, and “not previously observed” indicates phylotypes for which no 100% similar 18S rRNA sequence had been detected previously in the environment.
