      I am having trouble IDing my unknown. Any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated. this is what I have:

      Gram positive bacilli (Gram stain looks purple/black)
      non-sporing
      size = 1.0×2.00 um typical (up to 4.0 to 5.0 um some – gets shorter w/ age)
      pallisading (prs or quads)
      colonies = small, round, yellow/orange singular colonies, convex, shiny (slow growing @ 37*C)

      methyl red = (w+)
      VP = (-)
      Catalase = (+)
      Urea = (w+)
      PYR hydrolysis = (-) yell/orange
      Citrate = (-)
      Indole = (-)
      Nitrate = (+)
      Bile esculin – (-)
      Mannitol = (-)
      ONPG = (-)
      7% NaCl = (-) no growth

      Not sure where to go from here. Please help!!! Bergey’s Manual doesn’t show much help. Also, any websites I can get info on or to better identify? Thanks.
