As a closer view of PHIL 12410, this photograph depicts the colonial morphology displayed by Gram-negative Burkholderia thailandensis bacteria, which was grown on a medium of MacConkey agar, for a 48 hour time period, at a temperature of 42�C. Also, see both PHIL 12405 and 12406, for views of this bacterial specie, grown on the same medium, for the same amount of time, however, at a lesser temperature of 37�C, and note that PHIL 12419 and 12420 depict the same bacterial specie grown on the same media, but at a lesser temperature (37�C), and for only 24hrs. Take a look at PHIL 12427 and 12428 colonial growth on the same medium and temperature, but at half the time period (24hr).
