Description is based on a single species isolated.
Gram-positive rods, 0.75-0.9 x 1.2-2.0 µm.  Nonspore-forming. Nonmotile.
Colonies (up to 3 mm in diameter) are irregular, translucent, grayish and have erose
margins. Not hemolytic. Strictly anaerobic. Temperature range 30-40 ºC (optimum
37-40 ºC). No growth at 20 or 45 ºC.
