A taxonomic study was done for the isolates obtained as cellulose high producers from sucrose. These strains were found to have a common characteristic unique for Acetobacter; they did not oxidize acetate and lactate. Therefore, we concluded that these isolates are classified as a new subspecies and proposed Acetobacter xylinum subsp. nonacetoxidans subsp. nov. BPR 2002 (=JCM 10150) was designated as a type strain of the new subspecies.
