|Contribution||Reported bacteria in human stomach (sarcinae, i.e., Sarcina, Coccaceae).|
|Reference||Garrison & Morton|
|Notes||John Goodsir. Sarcina morrhuae was proposed in 1880 by Farlow as name for [colorless] organism on salt fish. May or may not have been related to [red] organism later named Halococcus. "Coccaceae" not in Bergey's Manual, but in Index Bergeyana,1966, where it is listed as a bacterial family erected by Zopf in 1883. Association of Sarcina and Coccaceae with Goodsir is evidently retrospective. Garrison 4th. says Goodsir discovered Sarcina ventriculi in 1865.|
