Forty-three mucoid strains of coliform bacilli from various sources were divided biochemically into 38 klebsiella strains, 2 escherichia strains and 3 A erobacter cloacae strains. Of 35 hitherto untyped klebsiella strains, 6 new types were distinguished by capsule-swelling, agglutination and absorption tests, from previously known types 1 to 63. Two main serological groups emerged, namely type 54, which included 34% of the Edinburgh strains, and type 30, which included 31%. This contrasts with the quite different distributions of types which have been found in Denmark and the United States. Biochemical and morphological criteria for the klebsiella group are discussed
