A group of 17 strains of coagulase negative staphylococci isolated from slaughtered lambs, and which could not be identified with the conventional methods, exhibited high levels of DNA homology (92%) with the S. caseolyticus reference strain. The isolates described in this study provide a more extensive comprehension of S. caseolyticus. The original description of this species was based on only two strains isolated from milk. To our knowledge, S. caseolyticus had never been previously associated with animal microflora.
