Thirty-five strains of Pseudomonas cepacia Burkholder, isolated over the last 6 years, were compared with three EO-1 strains, two strains of P. multivorans Stanier et al., and the type strains of P. cepacia and P. kingii Jonsson, the name of the latter having been given to the EO-1 group. The strains were examined in a range of morphological, biochemical, and carbon substrate utilization tests, and, for selected strains, by electron microscopy, deoxyribonucleic acid base composition, serotyping, and phage typing. From the results of these tests, P. kingii Jonsson 1970 (EO-1 group) is considered a later subjective synonym of P. cepacia Burkholder 1950 (P. multivorans). The outstanding property of P. cepacia is its nutritional versatility, which is reflected in the large number of carbohydrates from which acid is produced by this organism. A table is given for differentiating P. cepacia from P. pseudomallei, P. mallei, P. aeruginosa, P. fluorescens, P. stutzeri, and P. maltophilia.
