Pseudomonas peli Vanparys et al. 2006, sp. nov.
Gram-negative cells, rod-shaped (1 µm wide and 2–3 µm long) with rounded ends,
motile, nonspore-forming and nonfluorescent.
After 24 h incubation at 28 ºC on TSA, colonies are 1–2 mm, smooth, round with
irregular edges and beige to yellow. Good growth is observed at 28–37 ºC, but not
below 20 ºC or above 45 ºC. No anaerobic growth is observed. Medium: TSA.
Isolated from nitrifying inoculum (activated sludge).
