Does anyone know of any obligately anaerobic denitrifying bacteria ?

Or how about any chemolithotrophic obligate anaerobes that oxidize something
other than hydrogen, e.g. Sulfur, Sulfide, Ammonium ion, etc.

or how about   any anaerobes that can attack alkane hydrocarbons in the
complete absence of oxygen ?

I am updating a course that I teach and these questions have arisen as i
review my notes.

Thanks to all who read this note.
