Gram-positive rods of various shapes, forming a branched structure with a ‘Y’ at the
end. Non-motile. Asporogenous.
Colonies are white, smooth, opaque, 1.0-2.0 mm in diameter after 3 days of anaerobic
incubation on TPY agar. Non-haemolytic. Optimum growth temperature 40 ºC; range
25-46 ºC. No growth at 20 or 48 ºC. Grows at pH 4.5-8.0 (optimum pH 7.0). Survive
under microaerophilic conditions.
Isolated from faeces of common marmoset  (Callithrix jacchus).
Undetermined.
