Common environmental bacterium

Lineage: Bacteria[23374]; Actinobacteria[2444]; Actinobacteria[2173]; Micrococcales[494]; Micrococcaceae[99]; Micrococcus[5]; Micrococcus luteus[1]
Micrococcus luteus. Micrococcus luteus was originally isolated by Alexander Fleming in 1929 as Micrococcus lysodeikticus. This organism can be found in many environments including soil, water, animals, and dairy products. Micrococcus luteus is able to survive in the environment for long periods and has been isolated from inclusions in amber.
