Emendation accompanied by 2 proposals regarding the synonymy of the species.
Staphylococcussciuri is the correct name if this species is regarded as a separate species (i.e., if its nomenclatural type is not assigned to another species whose name is validly published, legitimate and not rejected and has priority) within a separate genus Staphylococcus.
According to Bartlett et al. (2022), this species is an established human pathogen.Publication:
