Gram-negative rods, motile by 1 polar flagellum.
Colonies on nutrient agar are smooth, circular, and non-pigmented. No hemolysis
observed on blood agar. Fluorescent pigment is produced in King B medium. PHB is
not accumulated. Can grow at 4 ºC, no growth at 41 ºC.
Isolated from natural mineral water.
Unknown.
