Abstract

SUMMARY

During the past few years, observations on stalked bacteria have been reported that permit a meaningful reevaluation of their taxonomic treatment. We recommend here that two families of stalked bacteria be recognized: , to comprise bacteria whose stalk is an integral part of the cell, and , to comprise bacteria whose stalk is a secreted structure. Two genera should be included in Henrici and Johnson and Poindexter. A single genus, Ehrenberg, should be included in . The genera and should not be included in either family, since cultivated cells of these genera have not yet been studied; their affinity to is acknowledged.
