Species classified within the genus share many of the phenotypic characteristics typical of streptomycetes. By using a probabilistic identification scheme, they were identified with cluster 5, a species group within . The four species studied hybridized with a 16S rRNA genus probe for spp., indicating a close relationship between the two genera. The kitasatosporias were resistant to selected polyvalent streptomycete phages tested. Quantitative analysis showed that -diaminopimelic acid varied from 49 to 89% in species and from 1 to 16% in species depending on growth conditions. On the basis of 16S rRNA analysis, it is proposed to reduce to synonymy with . As a result, the new names proposed are comb. nov., comb. nov., comb. nov., and comb. nov., nom. nov.
