Staphylococcus capitis is a coagulase-negative species (CoNS) of Staphylococcus. It is part of the normal flora of the skin of the human scalp, face, neck, and ears and has been associated with prosthetic valve endocarditis, but is rarely associated with native valve infection.
Staphylococcus caprae is a Gram-positive, coccus bacteria and a member of the genus Staphylococcus. S. caprae is coagulase-negative. It was originally isolated from goats (caprae means "of a goat"), but members of this species have also been isolated from human samples.
Staphylococcus felis is a Gram-positive, coagulase-negative member of the bacterial genus Staphylococcus consisting of clustered cocci. It demonstrates limited hemolytic activity, but is does show evidence of urease activity and the ability to use sucrose, mannose, and trehalose.
Staphylococcus hominis is a coagulase-negative member of the bacterial genus Staphylococcus, consisting of Gram-positive, spherical cells in clusters. It occurs very commonly as a harmless commensal on human and animal skin and is known for producing thioalcohol compounds that contribute to body odour.
Staphylococcus hyicus is a Gram-positive member of the bacterial genus Staphylococcus consisting of clustered cocci. Originally isolated from skin infections in pigs and named Micrococcus hyicus, the species was moved to its present genus on the basis of phenotypic similarities. S. hyicus is a known animal pathogen.
Staphylococcus lentus is a Gram-positive, oxidase-positive, coagulase-negative member of the bacterial genus Staphylococcus consisting of clustered cocci. The species was originally classified as a subspecies; its name is a combination derived from Staphylococcus sciuri subsp. lentus.
Staphylococcus pasteuri sp. nov., isolated from human, animal, and food specimens. Chesneau O(1), Morvan A, Grimont F, Labischinski H, el Solh N. Author information: (1)National Reference Center for Staphylococci, Laboratoire des Staphylocoques et des Streptocoques, Institut Pasteur, Paris, France.
Staphylococcus pettenkoferi (honouring Max von Pettenkofer, 1818–1901, German pioneer in the field of hygiene and public health) was described in 2007 and is a member of the bacterial genus Staphylococcus, consisting of spherical, Gram-positive, nonmotile, nonspore-forming, facultative anaerobic bacteria.
Staphylococcus saccharolyticus is a Gram-positive, coagulase-negative, anaerobic member of the bacterial genus Staphylococcus consisting of single and clustered cocci. The species was formerly known as Peptococcus saccharolyticus, but was reclassified on the basis of 16S ribosomal RNA and biochemical similarity to other members of Staphylococcus.
Staphylococcus sciuri is a Gram-positive, oxidase-positive, coagulase-negative member of the bacterial genus Staphylococcus consisting of clustered cocci. The type subspecies S. sciuri subsp. sciuri was originally used to categorize 35 strains shown to use cellobiose, galactose, sucrose, and glycerol.
Staphylococcus xylosus is a species of bacteria belonging to the genus Staphylococcus. It is a Gram-positive bacterium that forms clusters of cells. Like most staphylococcal species, it is coagulase-negative and exists as a commensal on the skin of humans and animals and in the environment.
