Where we found it: On the central keyboard at the WHYY-FM radio studio in Philadelphia, PA

Why it's awesome: Almost nothing is known about this microbe, but hey… isolated from llamas!

Fun fact: The microbes in this genus are closely related to the much more famous Staphylococcus (e.g. MRSA) genus but have not been shown to cause disease
