The morphological, cultural, physiological, and biochemical characteristics of a new actinomycete are described. The organism is distinctive because of the absence of aerial mycelium and the presence of glycine and LL-diaminopimelic acid in its cell wall. The mycelium bore numerous round-to-pyriform sporangia, each of which contained a single zoospore. The strain could not be classified in any of the previously named genera of the , and it is therefore considered to be a member of a new genus, for which the name is proposed. The type species (monotype) of this genus is sp. nov., so named because of its orange color when grown on agar media. The type strain of is A/10312 (=ATCC 29727).
