Abstract

Eight coagulase-negative, novobiocin-susceptible staphylococcal strains were isolated from human clinical specimens at two different Belgian medical facilities. All strains were non-motile, Gram-stain-positive, catalase-positive cocci. DNA G+C content, peptidoglycan type, menaquinone pattern, the presence of teichoic acid and cellular fatty acid composition were in agreement with the characteristics of species of the genus . Sequencing of the 16S rRNA gene and four housekeeping genes (, , and ) demonstrated that these strains constitute a separate taxon within the genus . Less than 41 % DNA–DNA hybridization with the most closely related species of the genus ( and ) was observed. Key biochemical characteristics that allowed these bacteria to be distinguished from their nearest phylogenetic neighbours are arginine dihydrolase positivity, ornithine decarboxylase negativity and inability to produce acid aerobically from -mannose, α-lactose and turanose. Acid is produced aerobically from trehalose. Based on these results, a novel species of the genus is described and named sp. nov. The type strain is SEQ110 ( = LMG 26879 = CCUG 62657 = DSM 26618).
