Abstract

The cellular long-chain fatty acids present in 33 strains, representing 15 species of , and 4 species of , were determined by gas chromatography. According to the relative amounts of fatty acid methyl esters, the species studied were divided into four main groups. Possible relationships between species representing the two genera are presented in a new model, where cellular long-chain fatty acid compositions and other phenotypic characteristics are included.
