Abstract

The asaccharolytic and saccharolytic strains at present classified together in one species, have been shown to differ in a number of properties including their deoxyribonucleic acid base ratios. It is proposed that the asaccharolytic strains (guanine-plus-cytosine content, 50 to 54 mol%) should be assigned to a separate species, whereas the saccharolytic strains (guanine-plus-cytosine content, 40 to 45 mol%) should still be classified in the two subspecies subsp. and subsp. although further study is required to complete the characterization of these two groups.
