Hello everyone,

Does anyone know since when did certain species of Microccus (M. varians, 
M. roseus, M. kristinae) get a genus name change to Kokuria? I just found 
out this week when some organisms I set up on API Staph did not "code 
out" in the index, and their telephone database listed those profiles as 
good identifications for "Kokuria" varians/roseus, etc.

Also, what are the characteristics of the apparently new genus Kokuria 
which distinguish it from Micrococcus?
