Multilocus enzyme electrophoresis of 161 Hafnia alvei isolates from 158 hosts and 3 water column samples collected in Australia revealed that this species consists of two genetically distinct groups. The two groups of H. alvei differed significantly in their genetic structure and host distribution. The taxonomic class of the host but not geographic locality explained a significant proportion of the observed genetic and biochemical variation among strains within each genetic group.
