Abstract

SUMMARY

Similarity values based on 199 features of 88 strains of bacteria, including freshly-isolated strains of streptococci and named strains of the genera and , were analysed by single and complete linkage sorting programmes. It is concluded that , and strains currently known as show closer relations to the family Lactobacillaceae than to the other representatives of the family Coryne-bacteriaceae here examined.
