Basonym:
Pseudomonas doudoroffii Baumann et al. 1972.
Gram-negative rods, 0.7–1.2 x 2.0–2.5 µm. Motile by up to three polar flagella.
Can grow on Marine agar. Accumulates poly-beta-hydroxybutyrate. Isolated in liquid
medium containing allantoin, benzoate, creatine, caprylate, or D-aminovalerate.
Require Na+ for growth. Growth temperature 10-41ºC.
Isolated from Pacific Ocean surface water.
Undetermined.
