Staphylococcus saprophyticus

An aerobic gram-positive coccus that produces a smooth, either gray-white or yellow to yellow-orange colony. It does not produce free or bound coagulase but rarely may produce hemolysins. It may be part of the normal flora of the skin of humans and other mammals. It has been implicated in urinary tract infections, especially those infections occurring in young adult women.
