Abstract

The taxonomic position of a thermophilic actinomycete strain isolated from soil was examined using a polyphasic approach. The strain, designated CH-M-1035, was assigned to the genus on the basis of chemical and morphological criteria. It formed aerial hyphae that carried long chains of rounded, smooth spores. The almost complete nucleotide sequence of the 16S rRNA gene of strain CH-M-1035 was determined and its comparison with the 16S rDNA sequences of previously studied streptomycetes confirmed the assignment of the novel strain to the genus . Strain CH-M-1035 clustered with species belonging to the clade in the 16S-rDNA-based phylogenetic tree. However, the phenotypic properties of strain CH-M-1035 differed from those of the recognized species within this clade. Therefore, it is proposed that strain CH-M-1035 be classified as a novel species within the genus , as (type strain CH-M-1035 =DSM 41796 =BM-B-384 =NRRL B-24196).
