Is Klebsiella mobilis a lactose fermenter?


There are two demos in my lab for K. mobilis on a MacConkey Agar plate. One of them shows as yellow and the other shows as very very pink. So which one is it?

I know that Klebsiella pneumoniae is a mucoid lactose fermenter, so is the genus of Klebsiella lactose fermenting?

Thank you

    Both Klebsiella pneumoniae and K. mobilis  are lactose fermenter and both are producing pink colonies as well.
