Abstract

SUMMARY

The results of an oxidase test were positive with species of and eight species of , but negative with and species of and , grown on Columbia Agar base and similar media, including Brain Heart Infusion Agar and Mueller Hinton Agar. When grown on Sabouraud Dextrose Agar, all the yeast genera and species were oxidase negative. The test is useful in delineating the genus from and .
