Abstract

SUMMARY: The generic name is proposed for a group of aerobic Grampositive cocci that are commonly found in the air of occupied places and in dust. The most characteristic features of the organisms are ability to grow in the presence of 40 % bile and to produce greening on blood agar. They are catalase-negative, and do not show chain-formation in culture.
