Summary 1. A nocardia-like bacterium, isolated from an o-toluanilide soil enrichment culture, is able to use the systemic fungicides o-toluanilide, o-iodobenzanilide, 2,5-dimethyl-furan-3-carboxanilide, carboxin (5,6-dihydro-2-methyl-1,4 oxathiin-3-carboxanilide) and oxycarboxin (5,6-dihydro-2-methyl-1,4-oxathiin-3-carboxanilide-4,4-dioxide) as sole sources of carbon and nitrogen. 2. Growth is also observed in a mineral-salts medium with aniline, acetanilide, IPC (isopropyl-N-phenylcarbamate), phenol, paraffin and other carbon sources. 3. The bacterium, preliminarily designated A 1, is characterized by growth tests and biochemical tests.
