Abstract

The existence of subgroups within has been reported previously on the basis of DNA-DNA hybridization and DNA base composition studies. In this study the strains used to define these subgroups have been reanalysed by pyrolysis gas-liquid chromatography. The resultant two-group classification of the test strains was directly comparable with that obtained from the previous nucleic acid analyses at the between-group level. However, comparisons of the test strains at the within-group level proved less successful.
