Abstract

A total of 186 mesophilic strains of Aeromonas, comprising 151 A. hydrophila and 35 A. caviae, were tested for peritrichous flagella by Leifson's staining method. When incubated on solid medium for 18 hr at 22 C, peritrichous flagella were demonstrated in 28 (18.5%) of the 151 strains of A, hydrophila and in 6 (17.1%) of the 35 strains of A, caviae. The peritrichous flagella in these 34 mesophilic strains of Aeromonas were also observed by electron microscopy.
