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).
