Abstract

SUMMARY The cultural and physiological characteristics of some spp. that are typical of the genus were compared with two atypical species, and . Electron microscopic studies of , prepared by two methods, show that this organism possesses peritrichous flagella. This fact, together with evidence of the fermentative metabolism of carbohydrates, should exclude this bacterium from the genus . The interpretation of electron micrographs is discussed, and the systematic position of and .
