Abstract

is strongly thermophilic, growing rapidly above 50° (Tsilinsky, 1899). Its spores have a multilayered outer integument (Cross, Walker & Gould, 1968; Dorokhova, Agre, Kalakoutskii & Krassilnikov, 1968), possess dipi- colinic acid (Cross . 1968) and withstand boiling in aqueous suspension for considerable periods (Tsilinsky, 1899; Erikson, 1952; Cross, 1968). In all these features they resemble the spores of the eubacterial bacilli and Clostridia and differ from those of the mesophilic Streptomycetes (Glauert & Hopwood, 1961; Rancourt & Leche-valier, 1964; Bradley & Ritzi, 1968; Wildermuth & Hopwood, 1970).
