Gram-positive rod-shaped organisms. Nonspore-forming. Nonmotile.
On Columbia agar plates (bioMerieux) supplemented with 5%  sheep blood at 37 ºC
in aerobic or anaerobic conditions the colonies are whitish, low convex, dry, rough, 1-
2 mm in diameter after 48 hours incubation. Haemolysis is negative. CAMP test is
negative. Facultatively anaerobic.
Isolated from the choanae of the Golden eagles (Aquila chrysaetos).
Undetermined.
