Rods to oval cocci, 0.5–0.7 - 1.5 μm, motile by a polar flagellum. No diffusible
pigments produced.
Optimal growth temperature 30–37 ºC. Can grow at 40 ºC. Capable of growth in
nitrogen-deficient media, but acetylene reduction by cells grown under those
conditions is negative. Acid tolerant (pH 4.5).
Soil bacteria.
Unknown.

Oxidase reaction positive. Tributyrin, urea, and hippurate are hydrolyzed. Nitrate is
reduced to nitrite. Positive results for the utilization of lactose, melibiose, melezitose,
L-rhamnose, D-ribose, D(-)-tartrate, meso-tartrate, D-xylose. glycine, L-serine,
L-isoleucine, L-methionine, beta-alanine & oxalate.

Negative results for hydrolysis of starch, gelatin, lecithin (egg yolk reaction), esculin, and polypectate. Arginine dihydrolase,
denitrification and H
2S production are negative. Negative for the utilization of m-hydroxybenzoate, raffinose, D-trehalose, sucrose.

Adonitol utilization is variable.
