SUMMARY: In a continued search for a more suitable generic location for the species tentatively designated (Overbeck) Gordon & Mihm, strains of some species of , both animal and plant pathogens, were found to have the same morphology and the same, or nearly the same, physiological properties as strains of the species provisionally labelled Additional tests and observations applied to the strains of the species resulted in a pattern of approximately 30 different characteristics which distinguished the species. Among the newly studied properties was the ability to utilize glucose oxidatively. Because strains of the type species of the genus ferment glucose, the assignment of the glucose-oxidizing strains tentatively named to the genus is not proposed.
