Abstract

SUMMARY: An iron-oxidizing bacterium has been isolated from an ochre-polluted stream. Growth occurs optimally at pH 2·5 in a mineral medium containing 200 μg ferrous ions ml but lacking organic carbon. Manganese salts are not oxidized. The organism grows as long unbranched filaments encrusted with iron particles and is morphologically and physiologically distinct from other well characterized iron-oxidizing bacteria.
