Abstract

The sp. associated with annual ryegrass toxicity (ARGT) in Australia has been reported to differ from other spp. in serological properties, allozyme electrophoretic mobility, bacteriophage sensitivity, and adhesion to nematodes ( spp.). To clarify its taxonomic position, eight strains of the ARGT sp. were compared with strains of , and . The ARGT strains were distinguishable from the other bacteria on the basis of the results of a range of biochemical tests. DNA base composition, growth factor requirements, and growth rates were also determined. A new species, , is proposed, with type strain CS14 (= ICMP 9525 = NCPPB 3552).
