Abstract

The open-ended study of the International Working Group on Mycobacterial Taxonomy is an ongoing project designed to characterize slowly growing strains of mycobacteria that do not belong to well-established or thoroughly characterized species. In this third report we describe numerical clusters that encompass the type strains of , and Descriptions and discussion of the taxonomic status of three additional unnamed clusters, as well as a cluster that encompasses the erstwhile type strain of the presently invalid species “,” are also presented.
