Description

Sugar fermenters 2 3. Growth may occur anaerobically or under aerotolerant condtions with 5% CO2 2 4 3. Leptotrichia possess long and sometimes curved rod shaped morphology, which are commonly arranged in pairs, chains or long filaments 2 4 3. No in situ information is known about the genus in wastewater treatment systems.
