Phylum Proteobacteria, Class Gammaproteobacteria, Order Vibrionales, Family Vibrionaceae, Vibrio Group 510. It is closely related to
V. diazotrophicus and may become a named biogroup or subspecies of V. diazotrophicus.
Gram-negative motile cells. Not swarming on complex media.
Grows in media supplemented with 1 to 8% NaCl. Variable growth in 0% or 10% NaCl
The reference strain was isolated from an infected human leg wound.
Possible opportunistic pathogen.
