Abstract

SUMMARY: Strains of and related denitrifying bacteria were compared in their phenotypic properties and mean deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) base composition. On the basis of this comparison and of DNA hybridization experiments, it was concluded that, using practical diagnostic tests, no more than two nomenspecies can be recognized within the group. One, was extremely variable in phenotypic characteristics and in DNA base composition; we included in it the strains previously assigned to The other was a new species, Palleroni, which was more homogeneous in phenotypic characters, and in DNA base composition and homology. The comparative properties of known denitrifying pseudomonads are tabulated.
