Abstract

Tests useful for the identification of strains were applied to a collection of isolates from animal intestines and to reference strains, all of which were capable of growth on 40% bile and in 6.5% NaCI. Most strains could be identified as known species, and their characteristics corresponded, with a few exceptions of minor importance, with those described for , and . However, some diagnostically important carbohydrate reactions of and strains differed from those given in the species descriptions and in recent reports. Production of acid from raffinose and-xylose by varied with the host species from which the strains were isolated. and were isolated only from poultry, whereas was found only in mammals.
