Did you test for S. agalactiae?  My Micro Lab book says S. agalactiae is a
group B strep, Catlase neg., beta hemolysis.  It recommends a CAMP test:
pos, or hippurate hydrolysis: pos.  Also says S. agalactiae is not
(usually) sensitive to bacitracin and is resistant to SXT.  It is found in
the genital and intestinal tracts of humans.

Hope this is helpful.  I just finished an undergrad Micro course.
