SUMMARY: Five strains of were isolated from the following vegetable sources: flowers of sp. (two strains), leaves of , a sample of ‘hongo’ and a sample of sour red wine. The five strains show the characteristic properties of including pathogenicity for rabbits. These isolations do not prove that the organism has a saprophytic free-living stage; only that it can at least survive outside and animal host for an appreciable time.
