Description

These organisms are abundant in mesophilic AD systems although nothing is known about their ecology. The two clinical isolates of the genus are aerotolerant (6% O2) anaerobes with a coccus morphology. They do not ferment sugars but small amounts of acetate and butyrate are produced when grown on Fastidious Anaerobe Broth with meat granules. Nitrate is not reduced 1.
