Description A novel staphylococcal species, Staphylococcus petrasi, has recently been described. Strains of this species were isolated from human clinical specimens and are likely to be opportunistic pathogens, similarly to other coagulase-negative staphylococci. Previously, they may been identified as atypical Staphylococcus warneri, to which they are phenotypically closest. Phylogenetically, they are closest to the species Staphylococcus haemolyticus, Staphylococcus hominis, Staphylococcus devriesei, and Staphylococcus lugdunensis.
