eubacteria




Eubacteria, in the five-kingdom system of taxonomy, are one of the two main orders of true bacteria (the other being archaebacteria). They lack photosynthetic pigments and have very strong cell walls that are generally spherical or rod-shaped. Motile eubacteria possess a flagellum for locomotion.
