Two species of the new genus , belonging to the “actinoplanates” group, are described under the names sp. nov. and sp. nov. The organisms of this genus are aerobic and produce nonfragmenting vegetative hyphae and no true aerial mycelium. Short chains of nonmotile spores emerge singly or in tufts from the vegetative hyphae on the surface of agar media. The organisms have -diaminopimelic and 3-hydroxydiaminopimelic acids and glycine in the cell walls (a type II cell wall); xylose and arabinose (a pattern D whole-cell sugar); and phosphatidylethanolamine, phosphatidylglycerol, phosphatidylinositol and phosphatidylinositol mannosides but not phosphatidylcholine (a type PII phospholipid pattern). The major menaquinones in and are MK-9 (H4) and MK-10 (H8), respectively. The guanine-plus-cytosine content of the deoxyribonucleic acids ranges from 70.9 to 71.5 mol%. The type strain of type species is strain IFO 14495 (6183-E), and the type strain of is strain IFO 14496T (6257-C).
