Description is based upon a single isolate.
Gram-positive, short, motile (peritrichous flagella) rods  0.2-0.4 x 1.3-2.5 µm. Produce
subterminal/central, ellipsoidal endospores.
Colonies are  creamy white, slightly centre-convex, 4-5 mm in diameter Aerobic
growth, pH range 6-9.5. Growth temperature 22-44 ºC. Moderately halophilic, grow in
8%-33% NaCl.
Isolated from a sediment sample from Lake Ai-Ding, a salt lake in Xin-Jiang Province, China.
Resistant to gentamicin, streptomycin, tobramycin, neomycin and polymyxin B.
Undetermined.
