Abstract

Thirty-one strains of and were analysed together with twenty-five strains representing ten mycobacterial species. The comparative immunodiffusion technique was employed, using two reference systems, one for and the other for The results indicate that the slow growing and the fast growing strains are closely related and can not be separated into two clearly distinct clusters. Both species were closely related to including strains designated ‘M. peregrinum’ but clearly different from other tested mycobacterial species. The serological data are consistent with the classification of and and possibly in a single species. The results are discussed within the context of other taxonomic analyses of and
