Thank first! I know that there are many Biology Nu Ren here in this board.  
Please help!  
I have an unknow bacteria. I did a lot of test on it, still don't know which  
one it belongs to.  
Gram positive coci, short chain,nonmotile, catalase negative,  
Growth at   
ph9.6 +  
NaCl 6.5% + (incubate for about one week)  
Sheep Blood Agar:  
Alpha hemolysis -  
Beta hemolysis -  
Gamma hemolysis +  
Aginie hydrolysis: +  
Esculin hydolysis: +  
Starch hydrolysis: -  
Hippurate hydrolysis: -  
D-Xylose: +(incubate for about one week)  
L-Rhamnose: -  
Sucrose: +  
Raffinose: -  
Glycerol: +  
Adonitol: -  
Sorbitol: +  
Mannitol: +  
Inulin: -  
Trehalose: +  
Beta-Galactosidase: +  
CAMP: -  
SXT sensitivity: R  
Bacitracin Susceptibility: -  
I suspect this organism is Enterococus. faecalis(70% confidence), but still  
not sure because it should be + in Hippurate hydrolysis test, d in alpha  
hemolysis,and does not ferment D-Xylose. I also can't cross out the  
possibility of Streptococus. porcinus.   
Please let me know what's your idea. Thanks very much.
