Abstract One hundred strains of Corynebacterium equi were examined using standard laboratory procedures. Variations in colonial morphology were noted. The ability to reduce nitrate and to produce urease was shown to be valuable for confirmation of identification of C. equi. Production of hydrogen sulphide was a variable characteristic of C. equi. It is concluded that for those situations where the source of the organism gives no clue as to its identify, positive identification of C. equi may be difficult because of variability in colonial appearance and biochemical reactions.
