A technique for measuring glucose utilisation by mycoplasmas, in which the disappearance of glucose is monitored by the glucose-oxidase method, is proposed as an alternative to the pH method. For maximum reliability the number of organisms in the test suspension must exceed a critical minimum value. Differences in efficiency of glucose utilisation were demonstrated between species of Mycoplasma and Acholeplasma. 
Mycoplasma glycophilum, a new species of avian origin.
TLDR
Serological tests with 75 currently accepted Mycoplasma species or serovars failed to identify the isolate, and strain 486 appears to represent a new species, for which the name MyCoplasma glycophilum is proposed. Expand
Mycoplasma lipofaciens, a New Species of Avian Origin
TLDR
This strain was shown to be serologically distinct from 74 currently accepted mycoplasma species or serovars by growth inhibition, immunofluorescence, and immunodiffusion tests, which were supported in some cases by metabolism inhibition tests. Expand
Mycoplasma buteonis sp. nov., Mycoplasma falconis sp. nov., and Mycoplasma gypis sp. nov., three species from birds of prey
TLDR
Three new species with the typical characteristics of mycoplasmas were isolated from the tracheae of buzzards, saker falcons, and griffon vultures, showing that they belong to three new species that lyse avian, bovine, equine, human, ovine, porcine, rabbit, and guinea pig erythrocytes, but do not adsorb these ery Throcytes.

Revised minimal standards for description of new species of the class Mollicutes (division Tenericutes).
TLDR
Revised standards for novel species of the class Mollicutes are proposed that reflect recent advances in molecular systematics and the species concept for prokaryotes. Expand

Standardized bacteriologic techniques for the characterization of Mycoplasma species1, 2
TLDR
Bacteriological methods applicable to the characterization and differentiation of Mycoplasma species were investigated and the tests found most suitable were breakdown of glucose by oxidation or fermentation, hydrolysis of arginine or urea, reduction of tetrazolium, tellurite, and methylene blue.

TLDR
Differences, depending on whether growth occurred anaerobically, whether growth was smooth or granular and whether a precipitate was formed in horse serum media, served to distinguish most of the other strains. Expand

Mycoplasma bovirhinis is verified as an independent species and, on the basis of their known serological and biochemical characters, two of the three unnamed groups are proposed as new species, Acholeplasma modicum and M. alkalescens. Expand
