Bavariicoccus is a genus of bacteria of the phylum Firmicutes. This genus contains a single species, Bavariicoccus seileri, strains of which were originally isolated from German soft cheese.[1] Bacterial taxonomists have suggested that Bavariicoccus may be more appropriately placed within the family Carnobacteriaceae.[2]
