Gram negative, 0.75 x 1.6-2.6 µm, motile rods.
Colonies are small & adherent to agar. On complex media or media with tyrosine
colonies may become brown to black. No fluorescent pigment produced. Strictly
aerobic, growth temperature 30 ºC.
Isolated from soil by enrichment in mineral medium with poly-β-hydroxybutyrate as sole carbon source.
Unknown.
