Long and Gu 2019.
Gram-positive rods, 0.8-1 / 1.5-8 µm, occurring singly. Non-motile. Non-spore-forming.
Colonies are white, convex, rough with entire edges, 1-1.5 mm in diameter after 2
days at 30 ºC on mMRS agar. Facultative anaerobe. Grows at temperature range
15-40 ºC (optimally at 30 ºC). Variable growth at 37 ºC. Can grow at pH 5.0-10.0. Can
grow in 6% NaCl, but not in 6.5% NaCl media.
Isolated from traditional pickle, China. Tellurite tolerant.
Description is based mostly on API 50 CHL (bioMerieux) results.
