Gram negative, nonsporulating rods, 1.0–1.2 x 2.8–3.5 μm. Motile by a single polar
flagellum.
Colonies are smooth, circular and muddy-white, growing up to 1.5 mm diameter on
Luria Bertani agar after 72 hours incubation at 30 ºC.
Aerobic. No growth at 4 ºC; grows at 41 ºC, optimum temperature 28–37 ºC and pH 5–
9, but growth does not occur in the presence of 3% NaCl. Growth is observed on
MacConkey agar, Mueller–Hinton agar, Luria Bertani medium.
Isolated from oil-contaminated refinery soil in India.
Unknown.
