F-specific RNA bacteriophages (male-specific coliphages). These infect bacteria through the F- or sex-pili. Although they are only present in the faeces of a small proportion of people, they are commonly found in high numbers in sewage. They have been used primarily as an index of sewage contamination and, because of their relatively high persistence and similarity to viruses, as an additional indicator of treatment efficiency or for groundwater protection. There are two groups of F-specific coliphages, those containing RNA and those containing DNA and both groups are found in human and animal faecal wastes.
