General Information: Environment: Fresh water, Host; Isolation: Fresh water lake; USA, Louisiana, Baton; Temp: Psychrophile. This is a species of curved, nonflexible, pink bacteria. The species is of interest because it is able to grow at temperatures as low as 4°C. The species epithet is derived from slithy, a nonsense word from Lewis Carroll's Jabberwocky for a fictional organism that is 'slithy' and the Latin word 'suffix' meaning '-like, in the shape of', yielding the Neo-Latin word 'slithyformis' meaning 'slithy in form'.
