Abstract

Strain S04009, a Gram-stain-positive, coagulase-negative staphylococcus, was isolated from bovine mastitis in France. 16S rRNA gene analysis revealed it to be closely related to the coagulase-negative species , , and . At the whole-genome level, strain S04009 had an average nucleotide identity value <95 % and an inferred DNA–DNA hybridization value <70 % when compared to these species. Furthermore, phenotypic characteristics distinguished S04009 from those species. From these related species only strain S04009 and are able to ferment xylose and these two can be distinguished by the inability of strain S04009 to express urease activity. Based on the genotypic and phenotypic results, it is proposed that this isolate is a novel species, with the name sp. nov. The type strain is S04009 (=DSM 107950=CCUG 72763=NCTC 14184).
