Description is based on a single isolate.
Gram-positive (Gram-variable in old cultures), motile (peritrichous flagella) rods, 0.8–
1.1 x 3.0–5.0 μm. Produce ellipsoidal spores in swollen sporangium.
Colonies are light pink, glossy, smooth, convex after 3-4 days on TSA; colonies are
flat and slightly irregular in old cultures. Grow aerobically and anaerobically.
No growth in 2% 5% & 7% NaCl. Grow at  20 ºC to 45 ºC, optimum temperature 30-37
ºC. Grow at pH 4.5-9 to 7.5-11.0; optimum pH 6.5-7.3.
Isolated from soil in Chinju, Korea.
Undetermined.
