Stolz et al. 2005, type species of the genus.
Gram-negative rods, 0.5-0.8 x 1.0-1.5 μm. Motile by polar flagella.
On nutrient agar, colonies are brownish, circular and with an entire margin. Generally
weak growth on all complex Luria-Bertani  and nutrient broth or mineral media tested.
The best growth was observed on chocolate blood agar. Grows at 30, 37 and 42 ºC,
but not at 4 ºC. Aerobic, no anaerobic growth.
Isolated from water of river Elbe, Germany.
Undetermined.
