A new bacterial strain, strain CR-43 (T = type strain), which was isolated from tropical soil and was previously shown to have antinematodal and antibiotic properties, is described. The name is proposed for this organism. The generic placement of strain CR-43 was based on its typical morphology, its production of ll-diaminopimelic acid, and its fatty acid composition. To clarify the taxonomic position of strain CR-43, it was compared with the type strains of similar species. The results of a number of biochemical tests and a profile analysis of the hydrolyzable fatty acids indicated that CR-43 differs from previously described species. Strain CR-43 (= ATCC 55274 = NRRL B-16897) is the type strain of sp. nov.
