We describe a new species, , based on a study of characteristics of strains isolated from chickens and a pheasant. Strain CCM 3572 (= VIII) is the type strain of this species. The chemical composition of the cell walls of the strains of this new species is similar to that of , but these organisms are resistant to novobiocin and produce acid from a wide range of carbohydrates. Staphylococcal strains isolated from goat milk belong to another new species, . The type strain is CCM 3573 (= 143.22). These strains are more closely related to and than to other staphylococci.
