Ei·ken·el·la cor·ro·dens

(ī'kĕ-nel'ă kōr-rō'denz),
A species of nonmotile, rod-shaped, gram-negative, facultatively anaerobic bacteria that characteristically pits the agar under its colonies; it is part of the normal flora of the adult human oral cavity but may be an opportunistic pathogen, in pure or mixed culture especially in immunocompromised hosts.
