Gram-positive, small rods. Non-spore-forming. Non-motile.
Colonies are white, 1.0-2.5 mm in diameter on MRS agar after 48 h of anaerobic
incubation at 37
ºC. Grows at temperature 25-42 ºC (optimum 30-40 ºC), pH 3.5-6.0
(optimum pH 6.0). Facultatively anaerobic.
Isolated from the stool sample of  of an European hamster (Cricetus cricetus).
Undetermined.
