 Logan et al. 2000.
Gram-negative, slightly spiral rods with rounded ends,1.2-2.4 μm long. Motile by a
single bipolar flagellum.
Colonies are smooth, entire, and translucent and alpha-hemolytic causing some
greening of blood agar. After 3 days of microaerobic incubation at 37 °C, colonies on
agar are 0.5 mm in diameter.
Microaerophilic, but grows weakly under anaerobic conditions. Grows at 37 ºC, 42 ºC,
but not at 25 ºC.No growth in the presence of 2% NaCl, 2% ox bile, 0.02% safranin,
KMnO
4 and 1% glycine.
Isolated from the faeces of healthy individuals during a hygiene survey of abattoir workers in Switzerland.
Resistant to nalidixic acid and cephalothin.
Undetermined.

Positive results for catalase, nitrate reduction, selenite reduction & oxidase.
Negative results for  urease, indoxyl acetate hydrolysis, hippurate hydrolysis, & H
