Anthocerotibacter panamensis

Anthocerotibacter panamensis is a newly discovered species of cyanobacteria that was found in a sample from a rainforest in Panama. This cyanobacteria belonged to Gloeobacteria category. This is significant because, before the new species was discovered, there were only two species of Gloeobacteria that have been isolated. Like other Gloeobacteria, the new species does not have thylakoids, the membrane-bond components where the light-dependent reactions of photosynthesis in Phycobacteria and plants take place.
