Long and Gu 2019.
Gram-positive rods, 0.5-1 / 1-8 µm, occurring singly. Non-motile. Non-spore-forming.
Colonies are white or beige, convex, smooth with entire edges, 0.5 mm in diameter

range 15-33 ºC (optimally at 30 ºC). Variable growwth at 37 ºC. Can grow at pH
5.0-9.0. Can grow in 5% NaCl media, but variable growth in 6.0% NaCl media.
Isolated from traditional pickle, China. Tellurite tolerant.
