Abstract

SUMMARY: Proteus melanovogenes, originally isolated from black-rot in eggs, does not differ from , the cause of red-leg in frogs, more than different strains in each species differ from one another; and the two species may be considered as identical.

Both ‘species’ resemble Eeijerinck, von Wohlzogen Kuuml;hr and The divergences from a common type displayed by these species may be sufficient to warrant the preservation of some as separate species, some as varieties, but all strains of this type with the property of producing 2:3-butanediol from glucose should be allotted to the genus in the Pseudomonadaceae, as recommended by Kluyver & van Niel (1936).
