You need Bergey's Manual (there's 2 - the expensive one comes in several 
volumes and is called "Systematic Bacteriology", the cheap one is called 
"Deteminative Bacteriology") or the Prokaryotes (editors Balows et al.). 
The Prokaryotes is marginally more modern, also in several volumes, and 
your species are mostly in vol 3. Yu University Library should be able to 
get them for you.
