Aerococcus

(ār-ō-kok'ŭs),
A genus of aerobic gram-positive cocci occurring as airborne saprophytes; they produce α-hemolysis on blood agar and grow in the presence of 40% bile. Aerococcus viridans, the type species, is commonly recovered as part of the normal skin flora; it has low pathogenicity but has been reported as a rare cause of endocarditis.
[aero- + G. kokkos, berry]
