Temperate phage AP 50 isolated from a soil specimen failed to act upon different species of Bacillus, except in the case of 2 B. anthracis strains which showed a moderate sensitivity. In host range, antigenic structure, UV, pH and heat resistance it differed from other B. anthracis phages. In electron micrographs, phage AP 50 was characterized by a double layer coat on the hexagonal head. The phage was inactivated by chloroform or ether.
