Three bacterial orders were present in all samples: Bacteroidales (mainly Prevotella and Porphyromonas); Clostridiales (mainly Peptoniphilus, Anaerococcus, Parvimonas, Dialister, and Finegoldia); and Actinomycetales (Actinomyces, Actinobaculum, and Mobiluncus).
The two groups are the eumyces, or true fungi, and the actinomyces, filamentous bacteria of the order Actinomycetales.
The order Actinomycetales includes the families Mycobacteriaceae and Nocardiaceae, among others.
