The morphological and physiological characteristics of 14 strains of Alcaligenes odorans var. viridans Mitchell and Clarke (1965), are described and more than 65 characters of the strains recorded. Peritrichous flagellation was demonstrated. These itrains produce a distinct aromatic odor on culture media and a dark green discoloration of blood agar. Growth occurs in a basal mineral medium containing inorganic nitrogen as the nitrogen source supplemented by a suitable single carbon compound. The physiological differences between these strains and the type strain (NCTC 10388) of Mitchell and Clarke are pointed out.
