Abstract

SUMMARY:

1250 Gram-positive and catalase-positive cocci were isolated from bacon, pig and human skin and dust, and their morphology, physiology and biochemical characters examined. The genera and were recognized. Staphylococci were distinguished by their ability to form acid from glucose anaerobically and sarcinas by the formation of cubical packets. 570 isolates could be placed in the genus , 677 in the genus and 3 in the genus . Six subgroups were recognized within the genus and seven within the genus . The relationship of these subgroups to previously defined genera and species is discussed.
