and Ventura 2021.
Gram-positive rods of various shapes in WSP broth, forming a branched structure
with ‘Y’ on both sides. Non-spore-forming. Non-motile.
Colonies are white and circular, with a second slimy layer, while embedded colonies
are white and elliptical, 2-3 mm in diameter after 2 days of incubation under anaerobic
conditions on WSP agar (Wilkins-Chalgren agar supplemented with GMO-free soya
peptone 5 g/l, L-cysteine hydrochloride 0.5 g/l and Tween 80, 1 ml/l). Grows at
temperature 30-37 ºC (optimum 37 ºC; no growth at 20, 46 or 49 ºC), pH 4.5-9.0
(optimum pH 6.5). Anaerobic.
Isolated from the fecal sample of a Goeldi’s marmoset (Callimico goeldii), Czech zoo.
Undetermined.
