The type strain (ATCC 29863 = VPI 0310) of has a multilayered cell envelope structure consisting of a barely visible cell membrane, a dense intermediate layer, and a single-layered outer membrane. The cells do not have flagella and are not motile in hanging drop preparations. The results of this and earlier investigations indicate that despite having a negative Gram reaction, this strain is a gram-positive bacterium with a gram-variable cell wall structure. Since the type strain of fits the generic description of , the species is transferred to this genus as (Séguin) comb. nov.
