Abstract

Twenty-five strains of bacteria with characteristics that conform to those given in the original and subsequent descriptions of the organism currently known as (Burri and Ankersmit) Holdeman and Moore have been found to produce heat-resistant spores, which are often difficult to detect. Motility, also difficult to demonstrate in these strains, was found to be a variable characteristic within strains. We propose that subsp. (Burri and Ankersmit) Holdeman and Moore and subsp. (Prévot) Holdeman and Moore be transferred to as (Burri and Ankersmit) comb. nov. Prévot's strain 171 I (= ATCC 29084 = VPI 3303), placed by Prévot in , is designated as the neotype strain. Previously undescribed characteristics of this species are presented.
