      I have a gram + coccus
      motility is negative
      MSA is + for growth but -for fermenting manitol
      KoH Negative
      Catalase Positive
      oxidase negative
      Blood agar: no change in the agar; gamma

      Any ideas what it could be??

      Is it a facultative anaerobe? Is it a putative clinical isolate? Catalse rules out strep., oxidase rules out micrococcus, so what group(s) would that leave?

      As a lab exercise, probably so. How would your data allow narrowing the potential Staphylococcus spp.?
