Abstract

Violet-pigmented bacteria isolated from the estuarine waters of Waccasassa Bay, Fla., were found to have biochemical and physiological characteristics very similar to those of Gauthier 1982. All isolates tested had sheathed flagella, which seem to exclude them from the genus Baumann et al. 1972 as presently described. We suggest altering the genus description to include strains with this characteristic.
