Bacillus schlegelii is a Gram-positive species of bacteria. Strains of this species were originally isolated from a lake (Le Loclat) near St-Blaise, Neuchâtel, Switzerland. The species is thermophilic;[1] strains isolated from soil in Antarctica were found to grow at temperatures between 59 and 72° C.[2]
