Gram-positive rods, 0.8-1.2 / 2-9 µm, occurring singly. Non-motile. Non-spore-forming.
Colonies are white, convex, smooth with entire edges, 1-1.5 mm in diameter after 2
days at 30 ºC on mMRS agar. Facultative anaerobe. Grows at temperature range
15-33 ºC (optimally at 30 ºC). Variable growth at 37 ºC. Can grow at pH 5.0-9.0. Can
grow in 5% NaCl, but not in 6% NaCl media.
Isolated from traditional pickle, China. Tellurite tolerant.
