Gram-positive cocci, 1.0-2.5 μm in diameter, occuring singly, in pairs, tetrads or
clumps. Non-motile. Non-spore-forming.
Colonies form a pink-red pigment. Strictly aerobic. Moderately halophilic; growth
occurs in media containing 0-22% NaCl; optimum 4% NaCl.  Grows at 20-45 ºC;
optimal growth at 37 ºC. Grows in pH 6.5-9.5; optimum pH 8.0.
Isolated from a salted ray (skate).
Undetermined.
Positive results for arbutin hydrolysis, catalase, casein hydrolysis, DNA hydrolysis,
gelatin hydrolysis, hippurate hydrolysis, nitrate reduction, oxidase, acid production
from: D-ribose, glycerol, D-glucose, D-fructose, N-acetylglucosamine, D-maltose, D-trehalose, 2- and 5-ketogluconate.

Negative results for elastin hydrolysis, esculin hydrolysis, fibrin hydrolysis, indole production, methyl red test, starch hydrolysis,
urease, Voges–Proskauer test, acid production from: D-galactose.
