The taxonomic position of a soil isolate, strain 13.4T, was established using a polyphasic approach. The organism was found to have chemical and morphological properties consistent with its classification in the genus Amycolatopsis. Phylogenetic analysis of the strain based on its 16S rDNA sequence showed that it forms a distinct phyletic line within members of the genus Amycolatopsis. The organism was also readily distinguished from the type strains of all validly described Amycolatopsis species by its phenotypic features. The name Amycolatopsis rubida sp. nov. is proposed for this new species. The type strain is strain 13.4T (= AS 4.1541T = JCM 10871T).
