Long, Wei, Tu and Gu 2020.
Gram-positive rods, 0.8-1 / 1-2 µm, occurring singly or in pairs. Non-spore-forming.
Colonies are beige, convex, smooth with entire margins, 0.5 mm in diameter after 2
days at 30 ºC on mMRS agar. Facultative anaerobe. Grows at temperature range
10-37 ºC (optimally at 30 ºC). Variable growth at 37 ºC. Can grow at pH 5.0-10.0. Weak
growth in 5.5% NaCl, and negative in 6.0% NaCl media.
Isolated from traditional pickle, China. Tellurite tolerant.
Description is based mostly on API 50 CHL (bioMerieux) results / 48h.
