Peptococcus

 [pep″to-kok´us]
a genus of gram-positive, anaerobic, coccoid bacteria; they are part of the flora of the mouth, upper respiratory tract, and large intestine, and also cause soft tissue infection and bacteremias. P. mag´nus is the species most often recovered from clinical specimens.

Peptococcus

(pep'tō-kok'ŭs),
A genus of nonmotile, anaerobic, chemoorganotrophic bacteria (family Peptococcaceae) containing gram-positive, spheric cells that occur singly, in pairs, tetrads, or irregular masses, and rarely in short chains. They are frequently found in association with pathologic conditions. The type species is Peptococcus niger.
