Abstract

SUMMARY: The results of a study of 51 strains of luminous bacteria and 12 strains of non-luminous bacteria from related genera show that the luminous bacteria can be divided into three major groups. These groups span three genera, namely and a suggested new genus, , to accommodate the ‘’ organisms. Revised descriptions of the species are given.
