Caption: Viridibacillus arvi - Gram-positive, aerobic, spore forming, rod prokaryote (bacterium). Viridibacillus arvi (formerly known as Bacillus arvi) is a bacterial endospore forming bacillus (rod). Members of the genus Viridibacillus have the unique property of developing a green pigment, which is associated with sporulation. This image shows vegetative cells and terminally swollen sporulated cells. Unique chemotaxonomic characteristics including quinone and peptioglycan cross linking structure differentiate these bacteria.
