Abstract: Five new high-toxicity mosquitocidal strains of Bacillus sphaericus were isolated in Singapore. They all belong to phage group 8 and have binary toxin (51.4- plus 41.9-kDa) genes located on the chromosome but lack a 100-kDa- toxin gene. These strains of B. sphaericus constitute a new subgroup, as only two weakly toxic strains in phage group 8 have previously been described and all the known high-toxicity strains have both binary toxin and 100-kDa-toxin genes.
