Gram-negative, slightly curved rods, 0.4–0.5 x 1.5–5.0 μm. Motile by single polar
flagella.
Grows at 20-40 ºC, optimum at 30 ºC. Grows in the presence of 0.5% NaCl and pH  
6.0
-8.0 (optimum pH 7.0). Facultatively anaerobic.
Isolated from petroleum-contaminated groundwater in an underground crude oil storage cavity in Japan.
Undetermined.

Nitrate is reduced to nitrite. Ferments fumarate, malate and pyruvate. Elemental
sulfur, thiosulfate, sulfite, dithionite, DMSO, nitrate and arsenate can serve as electron
acceptors. Lactate, fumarate, pyruvate, succinate and malate can be used as electron
donors. Hydrogen and formate can serve as electron donors when acetate is used as
carbon source.
