One strain tested, the type strain LMG22228.
Gram-negative, motile cells.
Can grow in nutrient broth with: 1% to 6% NaCl. No growth in 0%, 8%, 10% or 12%
NaCl. Optimum growth temperature 20-30 ºC. No growth at 4 or 40 ºC.
Colonies on TSA with 2%NaCl
are transparent, beige, with  smooth margins, 5 mm in
diameter. Colonies are green on TCBS agar, small (2 mm in diameter), with  raised
margins.
Isolated from water extract of bleached Merulina ampliata (corals) around Magnetic Island, Australia.
Resistant to O/129, streptomycin, trimethoprim.
Associated with bleaching of Merulina ampliata.
