Summary

The properties of several named and unnamed strains of polarly flagellated “hydrogen bacteria” are described and compared with those of related autotrophic and non-autotrophic species. Two new species ofPseudomonas are described: one, a yellow-pigmented hydrogen bacterium,P. palleronii Davis; the other, a non-autotrophic, non-pigmented species,P. delafieldii Davis.
