Abstract

Summary: Fifteen endospore-forming, mesophilic, denitrifying cultures were isolated from tropical soil samples by anaerobic enrichment culture in peptone medium containing nitrite. The cultures are of the second morphological group of the genus and contain 39.1 to 41.5 mol% GC in their DNA. They are, however, phenotypically quite heterogeneous and differ from all previously described species. Seven of the new isolates can grow anaerobically with nitric oxide as the terminal electron acceptor, a character not previously observed in any bacterium.
