The micromorphology, ultrastructure, and cell wall composition of an actinomycete isolated from beach sand were studied. On the basis of its cell wall composition and some of its morphological features, it was placed in the genus . It differed from other members of this genus by producing rather ill-defined sporangia containing thick-walled, ridged spores together with short chains of similar spores. This organism is regarded as belonging to a new species, for which we propose the name . The type strain of this species is E90 (NCIB 11120).
