Abstract

A new species of is described. This organism is characterized by white aerial hyphae bearing long chains of smooth-walled spores and abundant sporangiumlike structures. The new species contains -diaminopimelic acid, arabinose, and galactose (type IV cell walls, type A whole-cell sugar pattern), phosphatidylethanolamine (type PII phospholipid pattern), and no mycolic acids. The single soil isolate has chemical and morphological properties consistent with the genus . A comparison with previously described species of the genus in which we used standard techniques, fatty acid profiles, and polypeptide banding fingerprints indicated that this strain is a new species. The name proposed for this new species is . The type strain is strain A80407 (= NRRL 18198).
