A new coagulase-negative species of the genus , is described on the basis of the results of a study of four strains that were isolated from flies. 16S rRNA sequences of the type strains of , and were determined and used, together with the corresponding sequences of and , for a comparative analysis. The new species is characterized taxonomically; this species is differentiated from the other novobiocin-susceptible staphylococci by its physiological and biochemical activities, cell wall composition, and levels of genetic relatedness. The type strain of this species is strain MB4 (= CCM 4175).
