Abstract

SUMMARY: A systematic study of the spiral form bacterial flora of oxidation ponds has been made. Three known species, namely and were constantly found. A primary enrichment medium for from natural sources is given. A new species has been isolated; its main characters are: strictly aerobic, catalase-positive, does not grow under anaerobic conditions in the presence of nitrate, forms microcysts, differs in carbon-source utilization from previous described species. The species has been named .
