With respect to a bacterium isolated some of the similarities and differences previously indicated between Thiobacillus thiooxidans and Thiobacillus concretivorus wee confirmed and the bacteria also provided considerable diferences compared to the two species in some repects. Severe precipitation of sulfur occurred in colonies and in liquid media of the organism isolated. The organism isolated utilized nitrate and asparagine as well as ammonium sulfate as a sole nitrogen source and grew well without being nearly inhibited by citrate and malate. This organism also showed the resistance to heats and external physical stimulations. Owing to some characters decribed above and the reports proposed, the organism isolated could be concluded to be Thiobacillus concretivorus and it was suggested that Thiobacillus concretivorus might be an apparently different species from Thiobacillus thiooxidans.
