Gram-negative ovoid rods, 0.5-0.7 x 0.6-0.9 μm. Motile by two lateral flagella on one
side.
Colonies on R2A agar are ivory, convex and round with entire margins. Growth occurs
at 15-45 ºC (optimum 30 ºC), at pH 5.0-9.0 (optimum 6.0-7.5) and in the presence of
0-6% (w/v) NaCl (optimum 0-3%). Strictly aerobic. Can grow on R2A, LB agar, TSA
and Marine Agar.
Isolated from beach sand from the Taean coast in South Korea.
Undetermined.
