Abstract

was originally described in 1978 as a genus and species of the family . However, the taxonomic position of this organism should be transferred to a taxon that includes the genera , and , based on the lowering of the taxonomic significance of sporangiumlike vesicles bearing flagellate spores and on a cell chemistry profile comprising the following: cell wall type III; a whole-cell sugar composition that is a variant of pattern C (presence of galactose, mannose, and rhamnose); menaquinones MK9(H) and MK10(H) as the major menaquinones; and phospholipid type P-II (presence of phosphatidylethanolamine). Chemotaxonomically, this organism is related to , while it is differentiated by its -type morphology; i.e., spore chain formation at the tip of aerial hyphae, formation of two distinct types of spore chains, lack of mycelial fragmentation, and the capricious formation of sporangiumlike vesicles bearing flagellate spores. The type strain is C677-91 (ATCC 31217).
