McAllister and Carter 1974.
Species "Incertae Sedis“; the species was excluded from the genus Pasteurella by DNA-DNA hybridization (Mutters et al., 1985a) and
16S rRNA hybridization (De Ley et al., 1990).
Coccobacillary, Gram-negative cells.
Colonies are nonhemolytic and V-factor independent.
Growth on MacConkey is positive.
Original isolates obtained from pigs feces. Occasionally isolated from rabbits and Guinea pigs.
Few cases of human infections were cited (most important from Guinea pig bites).
