A study of two similar actinomycete strains, NRRL B-16109 and NRRL B-16110, demonstrated the presence of both the and isomers of diaminopimelic acid in whole-cell hydrolysates, typical of the genus Omura et al. These strains also had a phospholipid composition (type PII; diagnostic constituent, phosphatidylethanolamine) typical of this genus. Studies of deoxyribonucleic acid relatedness between these strains and the type strains of the three previously recognized species of showed that they are not closely related to the other species. A new species, , is proposed for these novel strains, and NRRL B-16109 is designated the type strain.
