Pseudomonas aeruginosa pink, desoxycholate flat, rough colonies.
Most gut bacteria, including "Salmonella agar can ferment the agar sugar xylose to produce acid; "Shigella" colonies cannot do this and therefore remain red.

Coli" will ferment the lactose and sucrose present in the medium to an extent that will prevent pH reversion by decarboxylation and acidify the medium turning it yellow.

After exhausting the xylose supply "Salmonella" colonies will decarboxylate lysine, increasing the pH guide once again crack to alkaline and mimicking serial the red "Shigella" colonies.
Coliforms: yellow to orange serial colonies.
