Actinomycete strain LX (T = type strain), which decomposes cellulose, was identified as a member of the genus on the basis of morphological characteristics and the chemotype of the cell wall. The key characteristics of this organism are rectiflexibiles spore chains, a nonfragmenting vegetative mycelium, a warty spore surface, a type I cell wall, white to pink spore masses, and a lack of formation of soluble pigments (including melanin). These results indicate that strain LX represents a distinct species, for which the name is proposed. The type strain is strain LX, which has been deposited in the China General Microbiological Culture Collection Center as strain AS. 41332.
