Abstract

SUMMARY

Three recently isolated strains of a fast growing non-pigmented mycobacterium, two of which were from a series of injection abscesses and one which was recovered from a water tank, have been compared bacteriologically and serologically in gel-diffusion tests with a number of mycobacterial type strains. The three strains and type strains of , , and were of one species. This species differed in several respects from (), and . In view of the chronological priority of over the other names, we recommend that this name be adopted as the correct designation for this species. The origin of the type strain of is discussed and reasons are given for its acceptance as representative of Friedmann’s original strains.
