ABSTRACT: Although many red pigment producing soil isolates of actinomycetes have been identified, Actinomadura pelletieri was the only known red grain producing human mycetoma agent. Recently while investigating a mycetoma case in the Mycology Department, Calcutta School of Tropical Medicine, red grains similar to those of A. pelletieri were detected but organism had different cultural and biochemical characteristics. The isolate was provisionally identified as Actinomadura vinacea by red soluble production in SDA medium, positive casein hydrolysis and negative hydrolysis test of xanthine, hypoxanthine, tyrosin and nitrate reduction.
