These slant cultures demonstrated the similarity in colonial morphology between three aerobic, Actinomycetes spp. bacteria. From left to right you can see that the colonial growth of Nocardia asteroides, N. caviae, and N. brasiliensis, are all very similar. Nocardia spp. colonies can be smooth, but in this case, all these organisms produced colonies that would be described as mold-like, or verrucous, though N. caviae produced a colony that was smoother than the other two species. All produced colonies that were yellowish-beige in color.
