  1. Carbohydrate fermentation profiles were experimentally determined using API 50 CH (Biomérieux). +, fermentation observed; -, no fermentation observed. Gal, Galactose; Glu, D-glucose; Fru, D-fructose; Man, D-mannose; N-ac, N-acetylglucosamin; Amy, Amygdalin; Arb, Arbutin; Esc, Esculin; Sal, Salicilin; Cel, Cellobiose; Mal, Maltose; Lac, Lactose; Suc, Sucrose; Tre, Trehalose; N, number of different carbohydrates fermented. Results were reproduced in two independent experiments.
