Staphylococcus agnetis is a Gram positive, coagulase-variable member of the bacterial genus Staphylococcus. Strains of this species were originally isolated from the milk and teats of cows with mastitis.[1] This species is not known to infect humans.[2]

The genome of S. agnetis isolate CBMRN 20813338 has been sequenced and was found to be 2.4 kilobases long with a GC content of 35.79%.[3]
