 Zinnemann, Rogers, Frazer and Deveraj 1971.
Gram-negative coccobacilli or rods, occasionally short  filaments.
Colonies on chocolate agar incubated in air supplemented with 10% CO2 are high
convex, granular, yellowish, opaque, 1.0-1.5 mm in diameter within 24 hours; without
CO
2 , the growth is characteristically stunted, with very small colonies interspersed
with a few larger colonies. Beta-hemolysis is produced.
Aerobic, facultatively anaerobic, require V-factor but not X-factor for growth. Require
CO
2 enriched atmosphere. Growth on Mac Conkey agar is negative.
Bacteria has been isolated from human sore throats, ulcers of the mouth, sputum and urethral discharge of adult males.
Unknown.
