Abstract

SUMMARY

The genus , defined by the presence of mesodiaminopimelic acid, arabinose and corynomycolic acids in the cell wall, contains a very diverse group of organisms according to the results of numerical analysis of protein patterns; 13 groups were distinguished in this study. Strains isolated from axillary skin and hair included representatives of several groups but many strains were placed in groups 1 and 6A. Neither of these groups contained any reference strains and may constitute hitherto undescribed species. The reference strains of formed a coherent group not closely related to any non-pathogenic species.
