Abstract One of us has already published (1954, 1955) the results of studies on the causal moulds of maduromycosis; we now propose to give our experience on the identification of the aerobic actinomycetes causing similar conditions. We have studied 40 strains of aerobic actinomycetesl using methods similar to those used in the study of the causal organisms of maduromycosis. Our results emphasize the importance of the classical papers by KANTHACK (1893), VINCENT (1894) and BRUMPT (1906), aswel l as the views of some modern authors like CONANT and ROSEBURY (1952). Nevertheless the brevity of WAKSMAN and HENRICI (1948), proper to some types of papers, and the multiplicity of species described in the recent monographs of LACAZ (1945) and NEGRONI (1954), produce some confusion in the minds of non-specialized microbiologists. It is advisable to study both cultures and tissue sections with the parasitic grains. These have some very useful specific characteristics which will allow the species to be identified when cultures are not available for study. METHODS The morphology of the cultures was studied on glucose peptone (l per cent. Difco
