Campylobacter lari (formerly Campylobacter laridis[1]) is a species of nalidixic acid-resistant, thermophilic, microaerophilic bacteria first isolated from human faeces.[2][3] It shows anaerobic growth in the presence of trimethylamine N-oxide hydrochloride. Its type strain is NCTC 11352. It is commonly found in sea gulls. In humans, it has been involved in cases of enteritis,[4] severe abdominal pain and terminal bacteremia.[5][6]
