RANK: Species

TAXONOMY: Terrabacteria group -> Firmicutes -> Negativicutes -> Selenomonadales -> Veillonellaceae -> Veillonella -> Veillonella parvula

OVERVIEW:

Type species of the genus. Phylogentically indistinguishable to V. dispar. Nonhemolytic on Blood agar. Distinctive colony (1-3 mm) morphology, e.g., lens-, diamond- or heart-shaped, when grown on lactate agar media. Smooth, entire and grayish white in appearance. [7]Commonly detected in the human oral cavity and intestinal tract. Prevalent on all oral surfaces [4] and in supragingival and subgingival plaque [4,5,6]Veillonella parvula tend to be more prevalent in sites without disease, however it has been associated with discitis [3], tonsillitis, spinal osteomyelitis, sepsis, endodontic lesions [1], and coronary heart disease [2]Identified as a constituent of the oral microbiome by Human Oral Microbiome Database.

This species has been identified as a resident in the human gastrointestinal tract based on the phylogenetic framework of its small subunit ribosomal RNA gene sequences.[PMC 4262072]
