Phylum Proteobacteria, Class Gammaproteobacteria, Order Pseudomonadales, Family Pseudomonadaceae, Genus Pseudomonas,
Pseudomonas moraviensis Tvrzová et al. 2006.
Gram-negative, nonspore-forming rods, 0.6-1.3 x 2-5 μm, occurring singly or in pairs.
Motile by polar flagella. Cells form long rods (5-10 μm) in nutrient broth.
Colonies are circular, smooth and 2-3 mm in diameter after 24 h of cultivation.
Fluorescein is produced on King B medium. Pyocyanine is not produced on King A
medium. Growth occurs at 4-35 ºC, with optimum growth at 28-35 ºC.
Isolated from soil.
