Have you attempted to grow the bug on any other media such as a blood agar
media to see if it is hemolytic or not.  Also, what is its gram reaction,
does it form a spore, what is its relationship to oxygen.  One needs much
more information than what you have given to determine what it may be. 
Also, from where did you isolate this litlle guy from.  Let me know what
