Abstract

A new species of , , was isolated from African soil. This organism differs from other species of in that it forms deep green vegetative mycelia and white, curled aerial mycelia that fragment into long chains of smooth-walled, elliptical spores and produces a complex of novel acid enol antibiotics. Whole cells contain -diaminopimelic acid and madurose but lack nitrogenous phospholipids. This species can utilize a wide variety of carbohydrates, grow in the presence of numerous antibiotics, and actively hydrolyze many organic compounds. The type strain of . is SCC 1256 (= ATCC 31588).
