Gram-positive diphtheroids rods. Non-spore-forming. Non-motile.
Colonies on modified ISP 5 medium, trypticase/soy agar medium and Mueller–Hinton
agar medium are yellow, circular, entire, somewhat convex, opaque and 0.5–1.5 mm
in diameter after 24 h at 28 ºC. Growth at pH 7.2, in 2-3 days. Aerobic. Halotolerant: it
grow in 0-25% KCl (optimum 10%).
Isolated from a saline soil sample from the west of China.
Undetermined.

    sp. nov., isolated from saline soil in the west of China. IJSEM 54, 779-782.
Most biochemical reactions were determined by API Coryne and API ID 32 E.

Positive results for gelatin hydrolysis, beta-glucuronidase, H
2S  production, lipase,
nitrate reduction, urease & acid production from glucose.
