It is common experience in the routine bacteriological investigation of clinical dysentery in the tropics to find frequently, organisms whose morphology, cultivation, characters and biochemistry suggest known groups or even species, but which fail to respond to subsequently applied serological tests in the attempt to identify them. Many of these recently isolated organisms fail to agglutinate with what appears to be a homologous serum. It is well known that repeated subculture and other manoeuvres directed towards colony selection will render ultimately agglutinable many of these strains. There remains, however, a number of organisms which refuse to disclose their serological identity and remain inagglutinable: such bacteria without antigen overlap or group anti
