Taxonomy ofCryptococcus Neoformans and its varietyUniguttulatus
A comparative study of a number of strains of the speciesCr. neoformans and its varietyuniguttulatus showed that capsule formation was inappropriate as a character to differentiate species and variety. The ability to grow at 37°C. and to use dulcitol andD-arabinose as source of carbon appeared to be more suitable. A definition of species and variety on this basis was given.
