Abstract

SUMMARY

Numerical analysis of data for seventy coryneform bacteria bearing the following generic names, and , was done by using 70 coded features and both single and complete linkage clustering programs.

Three major phenons were detected, probably corresponding taxonomically to the present family level in the taxonomic hierarchy. The first included , certain strains and species of animal origin. The second included rapid-growing species, and . The third was a more illdefined group of and certain other species. We suggest that all three phenons belong in the order Eubacteriales under the possible family names of Corynebacteriaceae, Mycobacteriaceae and Arthrobacteriaceae respectively.
