SUMMARY: Whole-organism methanolysates of bacterionemae contained mycolic acids in addition to other long-chain fatty acids. These mycolic acids were similar in general structure and overall size to those found in strains of and The long-chain fatty acids of bacterionemae, mainly straight-chain saturated and unsaturated acids, were similar to those of certain coryneform bacteria including On the basis of these lipid data, and results of earlier studies, we recommend that the genus be transferred from the family Actinomycetaceae to the Coryneform Group of Bacteria.
