Re-evaluation of the taxonomic position of strain K-252, which produces the compound K-252a, showed that the strain does not belong to the genus suggested previously. Strain K-252 formed aerial mycelia with long spore chains, and hyphal fragmentation was not observed. The cell wall chemotype of the strain was lll/B, the major menaquinone was MK-9 (III, VIII-H), the phospholipid pattern was PIV and the major cellular fatty acids were 10Me-C, iso-C and C. Phylogenetic analysis of the 16S rRNA sequence showed that strain K-252 was clustered in the group. Furthermore, on the basis of DNA-DNA reassociation and phenotypic data, strain K-252 (= NRRL 15532) was classified as a new species of the genus . This strain is proposed as sp. nov.
