Chromobacterium species

Members of the genus Chromobacterium are short, gram-negative bacilli that are motile by means of one or more flagella. Some species produce brilliant violet-colored colonies on culture media. The distribution in nature is quite wide-spread, and the bacteria are easily recovered from both soil and water. No specific diseases are caused by these organisms, but they are capable of causing severe skin and wound infections as well as septicemia.
