An attempt was made to classify gram-positive anaerobic cocci (GPAC) on the basis of their production of fatty acids from the fermentation of mannose, galactose and rhamnose by the use of gas liquid chromatography (GLC). The only species that could be separated were Peptostreptococcus (Pst.) anaerobius and Megasphaera (M.) elsdenii. Unfortunately the other species were indistinguishable using information obtained from the GLC analysis.
