Numerical taxonomic methods were used to analyze taxonomic data gathered for 229 strains isolated from fecal, seawater, and seafood specimens collected in Jakarta, Indonesia. Simple matching and Jaccard coefficients yielded similar results. Most of the clinical isolates were identified as , or . Environmental isolates included and one strain of . Clusters of V. parahaemolyticus included both clinical and environmental isolates. Biotypes of were not associated with a specific source. Reference strains of other species did not cluster with any of the isolates examined in this study. Four groups remained initially unidentified and were further subjected to deoxyribonucleic acid hybridization analysis, which enabled their identification as , or possible new spp. Descriptions of species already published proved useful in identifying and classifying most of the isolates from a tropical climate.
