Genus Arcanobacterium
Collins, Jones and Schofield, 1983
Gram-stain-positive, non-acid fast, non-motile, slender, irregular,
bacillary forms; many cells are arranged in V-formations. In prolonged
incubation become granular and segmented so that they resemble
small and irregular cocci. Endospores are not formed. Facultatively
anaerobic. Growth is enhanced by blood or serum. Some species are
recovered from human clinical material. All medical arcanobacteria
are catalase-negative. Nitrate reduction is usually negative.

Gram-positive / -variable, straight or slightly curved, predominantly
diphtheroidal, nonmotile rods, some of which tend to form branched
filaments of up to 1 mm in diameter. Some species are coccoid.
Endospores are not formed. Non-acid fast. Facultative anaerobes, some
are anaerobic. Catalase and nitrate reduction are variable. Indole is
not produced. Some species are greening the blood agar.
