Description

Commonly detected in the gastrointestinal tracts and feces of humans and animals. The sole species in the genus is strictly anaerobic, chemo-organotrophic and fermentative 2. Cells are irregularly shaped rods which form long chains 2. The main fermentation product is lactate 2. Maltose and 5-ketogluconate are the only carbohydrates utilized 2.
