Two strains of C. tropicalis isolated at an incubation temperature of 40° C had a higher optimal growth temperature than museum strains cultured at the same temperature over a 4-year period. Both strains could grow either on a liquid medium containing short-chain alkanes or on a solid medium containing n-alkanes of C15-C25. The optimal growth temperature for these strains on peptone agar was 38°; it was, however, somewhat lower (35°) on an agar medium containing paraffins of low C number. It was necessary to neutralize the medium periodically, particularly during the first 36 hours of growth, when culturing these strains on a hydrocarbon medium.
