Abstract: To date, studies concerning bacteria from the order  were focused on a pathogen belonging to Chlamydiaceae family. Lately, thanks to molecular biology techniques, the taxonomy of Chlamydiales was expanded with four new families: Rhabdochlamydiaceae, Piscichlamydiaceae, Clavochlamydiaceae and Criblamydiaceae and new isolates non-classified to any family. Tese bacteria are isolated as endosymbionts of insects, fishes and from water and water desposits. Among these microorganisms, environmental chlamydiae have been identified, as pathogens of human and animals.
