Zusammenfassung

Die Angehörigen dieses Anfang der 90er-Jahre neu eingeführten Genus sind mit den Vertretern der Gattung Campylobacter nah verwandt. Die gramnegativen, s-förmig oder spiralig gekrümmten Stäbchen wachsen jedoch im Gegensatz zu Campylobacter sp. auch bei 15°C und vermehren sich bei 30°C auch aerob [1, 2].
