Verrucomicrobia

Verrucomicrobia are abundant in aquatic and soil environments, and also found in the human gut. This is a recently discovered phylum, with a wart-like cell shape. Interestingly, Verrucomicrobia have been found to be elevated in hibernating squirrels and in some people after antibiotic treatment. There are no known pathogens in this group. (source: uBiome)
