Homotypic synonym: Paucilactobacillus oligofermentans (Koort, Murros, Coenye, Eorola, Vandamme, Sukura and Bjorkroth 2005)
Zheng et al. 2020.
Gram-positive rods, 0.8-3.1 x 5-27 µm, occurring singly, in pairs or in short chains.
Non-motile. Non-spore-forming.
Colonies are white, 0.5-2.5 mm in diameter at 15-25 ºC on MRS agar in anaerobic
atmosphere. Can grow at 4 ºC (psychotrophic
), optimum at 15 ºC, but not at 37 ºC.
Grows at pH 6
.3. Weak growth in 5.0% NaCl media; no growth in 6.5% NaCl.
Facultative anaerobic.
Isolated from late-shelf-life, modified-atmosphere-packaged, marinated broiler chicken legs, Finland.
Undetermined.

Biochemical description is based mostly on API 50 CHL (bioMerieux) results, 5 days / 25 ºC.

Positive results for fermentation of L-arabinose, D-glucose (weak reaction, with gas production), gluconate (weak reaction, without
gas production), maltose (weak reaction), N-acetylglucosamine (weak reaction), ribose, and D-xylose.

Negative results for arginine deamination, fermentation of: arbutin, adonitol, amygdalin, D-arabinose, D- and L-arabitol, cellobiose,
dulcitol, erythritol, esculin, D- and L-fucose, D-fructose, galactose, gentibiose, glycerol, glycogen, 2- and 5-ketogluconate, inositol,
inulin, D-lactose, D-lyxose, mannitol, mannose, melezitose, melibiose, D-methyl alpha-D-mannopyranoside, raffinose, rhamnose,
salicin, sorbitol, L-sorbose, starch, sucrose, trehalose, D-tagatose, turanose, methyl alpha-D-glucopyranoside, methyl beta-D-
