Abstract

One hundred and seven strains of nocardiae have been isolated from samples of activated sludge or from foam forming on activated sludge coming from 10 sewage-treatment plants in five states. Thirty-five of these strains belong to a previously undescribed species containing a novel type of nocardomycolic acid whose a branch is mono-unsaturated. The name proposed for this new species is The type strain is IMRU W3960 (= ATCC 27808).
