Syn. : Bacterium lactis aerogenes. A species found along with the Bacterium coli commune in the feces of infants fed with milk. It coagulates milk with the production of lactic acid and causes in glucose solutions an active fermentation, which can be maintained apart from the presence of air, although otherwise the b. is aerobic. In animals it produces effects similar to those caused by the Bacterium coli commune, but it differs from this organism in possessing a capsule and in never showing any motility.
