Abstract

SUMMARY: A numerical Adansonian analysis has been performed on the results of a wide range of biochemical and physiological characters of organisms at present classified in the genera and . The results show that some of the organisms need to be reclassified. could be considered as another type of , and and have little similarity to any of the other corynebacteria. and appear to be closely related to the mycobacteria examined. The plant pathogens and seem to be distinct from most of the animal parasites in this genus. The mycobacteria, nocardia and most of the corynebacteria from animal sources form one large group at the 51% similarity level. Acid-fastness does not seem to be a good criterion for separating the genus from the genus , some of the corynebacteria showed varying degrees of acid-fastness.
