What is the meaning of "among-species"? For instance, what does it mean if I say "among-species similarities"?

"among-species" hasn't any specific meaning, it's a bit of a mash-up of terminology. "Within-species" is the correct way of expressing the concept to which you are alluding.

    Sorry for asking again, I just want to make sure that I asked my question correctly?
    I am talking about some characteristics which can be found, for example, in sheep, monkeys, and humans.
    Can I use the term "within-species similarities" for them?
    Does not "within-species similarities" mean that there are some features that can be found in members of only one species?
