Question Anaerobic or facultative anaerobic?

Actinomyces is an anaerobic or a facultative anaerobic bacteria? CMMRS and wikipedia say is facultative anaerobic but FA says is an obligate anaerobic. So... what is it?

It's either since Actinoymyces is the genus. The different species of Actinomyces are either anaerobic or microaerophilic.

The most common of these is Actinomyces israelli.
