An almost complete sequence of the 16S rDNA of the type strain of was determined following direct sequencing of the amplified gene. The sequence was aligned with those of representatives of the family and related actinomycetes and phylogenetic trees were inferred by using three tree-making algorithms. The organism formed a distinct clade within the evolutionary radiation occupied by the family . It was also readily distinguished from all of the validly described genera classified in this taxon by using a combination of chemical and morphological markers. On the basis of these genotypic and phenotypic differences, the name gen. nov. is proposed for a new genus containing the previously misclassified . The type strain of is DSM 43194(= ATCC 43014= NCIMB 8926).
