Abstract

SUMMARY

Five strains of rapidly growing scotochromogenic mycobacteria were shown to have a capacity to degrade -aminosalicylate and salicylate, forming a black product(s). The organisms dilfer distinctly from known mycobacterial species that have this capacity, and , and from other mycobacteria. The organisms are considered to belong to a new species of the genus and are named sp. nov.
