The guanine-plus-cytosine contents of strains ATCC 17931 (T = type strain) and ATCC 19426 were determined by thermal denaturation and found to be 54 and 57 mol%, respectively. These values are lower than the values given in many publications, but are consistent with data cited in some other references.
