A hemolytic staphylococcal strain, Staphylococcus sp. strain 170179, was isolated from healthy human skin. Genome sequencing and comparison of strain 170179 to other staphylococci revealed a relatedness to Staphylococcus haemolyticus with an average nucleotide identity of 87.5%, indicating that Staphylococcus sp. 170179 belongs to a separate species.
