Abstract

SUMMARY

It is proposed that a second family be re-established within the Mycoplasmatales for those strains not requiring sterol. Following the nomenclature of Sabin, who first made this proposal, the sewage strains of Laidlaw and Elford are renamed and assigned to a family Sapromycetaceae. The status of strains not requiring sterol is discussed, including that of sewage and . In the light of recent evidence the pig isolates, originally named , seem to belong to the genus . Recently described tissue-culture isolates, as yet unnamed, represent another species within the Sapromycetaceae. It is questionable whether the organisms classified as . var. deserve the status of a named variety of .
