Abstract

SUMMARY

Data from previous numerical analyses have been combined to produce an over-all classification of the genus ; 93 strains were examined using 38 tests and 106 character states. The results indicated the possible existence of a new species and demonstrated an unexpectedly close similarity between . and .

A number of diagnostic tests have been selected from those used for the numerical analysis. A brief description of the other important features of each species recognized is also given.
