Abstract

SUMMARY: An aerobic actinomycete isolated regularly from the human mouth is described. This organism possesses the cultural, morphological and biochemical characters of Ørskov’s Group 2b, or more specifically, the genus . Although the results of cell-wall analyses differ from those obtained in this and previous studies upon other species of , we nevertheless feel that provisional classification in the genus is valid upon the present evidence. The specific name is proposed.
