Abstract

SUMMARY: Twenty-three strains of were isolated in pure culture from diseased honeybee () larvae in the Sudan. All the strains belonged to biotype A4(b). DNAase and lipase production, pectolytic activity, and citrate utilization were useful criteria for distinguishing from closely related bacteria. A challenge experiment using pure cultures of biotype A4(b) proved this organism to be pathogenic for honeybee larvae.
