On the basis of morphological and biochemical criteria, (Brocq-Rousseu) Lechevalier and Lechevalier, the former (Brocq-Rousseu) Liegard and Landrieu, is removed from the genus Lechevalier and Lechevalier to a new genus, It is proposed that this new genus harbors aerobic actinomycetes with a nocardioform substrate mycelium, an aerial mycelium, and a cell wall containing -2,6-diaminopimelic acid but not madurose or other diagnostically important carbohydrates. The type species is (Brocq-Rousseu) comb, nov., for which strain IMRU 509 (= ATCC 23218) is designated as the neotype. An outline of the characters which differentiate the new genus from the genera , and is given.
