Abstract

It is proposed that a second species should be established within the genus , with strain A417 (NCTC 10182) as the type strain. The new species differs from serologically and on the basis of the guanine-plus-cytosine content of its deoxyribonucleic acid and its protein composition as determined by polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. The species is serologically heterogeneous, the member strains apparently belonging to one of three serological clusters or groups.
