Abstract

SUMMARY: The morphological and physiological characteristics of an amylolytic rumen bacterium are described. The organism is an obligate anaerobic coccus which occurs in extremely long chains and exhibits marked pleomorphism. It is considered best placed in the genus The physiological characteristics and numbers in which the organism occurs suggest an important role in the rumen, especially under the conditions imposed by high-starch feeding.
