The type strain of Bacillus badius (ATCC 14574) was studied in detail. Out of a total of 201 sources of carbon and energy tested, only 19 were used. These included mainly organic and amino acids. No carbohydrates were used. The G+C content of its DNA was 47.5 mol %. The species B. badius therefore deserves to be included in approved lists of bacterial names.
