Family Aerococcaceae
Gram-positive ovoid cocci, 1–2 µm in diameter, grouped in tetrads, clusters
or pairs. Non-motile and non-spore-forming. Alpha-haemolytic.
Facultatively anaerobic. Catalase and oxidase-negative. Grows in 6.5 %
NaCl media. Vancomicin-sensitive. Acid is produced from glucose & some
other carbohydrates. Gelatin hydrolysis & nitrates reduction are negative.

NOTES

Abiotrophia defectiva (Bouvet et al.

known before as
Streptococcus
defectivus
Bouvet et al. 1989

Globicatella sanguinis corrig. Collins
et al. 1995 was known before as
Globicatella sanguis.
Gram-positive, non-spore forming, nonmotile, and spheroidal and occur in
pairs or groups. Facultatively anaerobic. Catalase negative. Voges-Proskauer
negative. Nitrate is not reduced. Acid is not produced from sugars. Hippurate
and starch are hydrolyzed. Arginine dihydrolase is produced.
