SUMMARY: An Adansonian analysis was made on 100 isolates of with the aid of a digital computer. A wide variety of tests was used to define the isolates. The resulting dendrogram showed that was a ‘good species’, with the 100 isolates related at high similarity values. No close affinity between biotype and host-species or between biotype and lesion was found, apart from the disposition within two adjacent groups of all of the isolates which originated from Swedish bulls.
