Abstract

A total of 138 strains of slowly growing mycobacteria, which were received as members of 18 named species, were classified by scoring matching coefficients. Eighty-eight characters were tested for each strain; of these, 48 were useful for differentiating between strains. and were clearly separated from the other species. and were regarded as species clearly distinct from each other and from other species in the genus. The other species studied formed a large cluster within which and were distinct. The remaining species could be divided into two large subclusters, one consisting of and and the other consisting of and Within the former cluster, was regarded as a distinct species, and and as fairly distinct species. In contrast to these, and were not clearly differentiated from each other and appeared to belong to a single species, for which the name . has priority. Within the latter cluster, appeared to be fairly distinct from the others. and could not be differentiated from each other, and they appear to belong to a single species, for which the name has priority.
