ReferenceGarrison & Morton
NotesJohn 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. "Coccacae" not in Bergey's Manual, but in Index Bergeyana,1966, where it is listed as a bacterial family erected by Zopf in1883. Associaton of Sarcina and Coccaceae with Goodsir is evidently retrospective. Garrison 4th. says Goodsir discovered Sarcina ventriculi in 1865.
