Abstract

Abstract

A new species, , was isolated from clinical specimens from cats and is described on the basis of a study of 39 strains. The newly described species is phenotypically similar to strains of , but has low levels of deoxyribonucleic acid-deoxyribonucleic acid homology (<10%) with JCM 2424 and related staphylococci. strains were coagulase negative and susceptible to novobiocin and bacitracin. A simple scheme for the differentiation of from related staphylococci is presented. The type strain is strain GD521 (= ATCC 49168 = JCM 7469).
