Brown et al. 2001.
Gram-negative rods, 1.0 x 2.0–2.0 µm. Motile by up to four polar flagella.
Aerobic growth on L-alanine, betaine, caprate, citrate, ethanol, l-glutamate, malate,
l-proline, phenol, sarcosine, and succinate. Grows in NaCl up to 7% (w/v). Growth
temperatures 10–30 ºC. Isolated by enrichment in liquid minimal salts medium
containing phenol as a carbon source and 5% NaCl.
Isolated from estuary mud.
Undetermined.
