Biochemical and antigenical characteristics of tannin-protein complex degrading enterobacteria (T-PCDE) isolated from Koalas, Phascolactos cinereus, were investigated. T-PCDE had a specific profile of characteristics, and T-PCDE was distinguished from those of 12 type strains of Enterobacteriaceac used.
