Abstract

The generic position of a gram-positive, facultatively methylotrophic actinomycete known as sp. strain 239 was determined by comparing reverse transcriptase sequences of 16S rRNA. The assignment of the organism to the genus was strongly supported by chemotaxonomic and morphological data. A comparison with the type strains of validly described species showed that the organism formed the nucleus of a new species. The name proposed for this new species is . The organism has been deposited in the National Collection of Industrial Bacteria as NCIB 11946.
