Abstract : Spores of 20 different strains belonging to different obligate anaerobic bacteria of the Clostridium genus were studied. The majority of them show protrusions on the spore surface in the form of tails, bundles of flagella and threads either covering the whole spore surface or being attached to one end of the spore. The outer morophology and the fine structure of the protrusions - the constant appendages of spores differ in different bacterial species and represent the stable species characters. According to the form of spores and protrusions as well as to their size the cultures can be divided into 6 groups. Some anaerobic bacteria are described as new species: C1. sporopenitum, C1. sporocristum, C1. sporofilum, C1. sporospilum, C1. sporospinum, C1. sporoverrucosum, C1. sporopilosum, C1. sporostellatum, C1. sporoappendiculatum, C1. sporotrichum, C1. sporosetosum, C1. sporocomosum, C1. spororenalis nov. sp.
