Abstract

A soil isolate, strain F829, which had provisionally been assigned to the genus , was subjected to a polyphasic taxonomic study. An almost complete 16S rDNA sequence was determined for this strain; the sequence was aligned with available sequences for nocardiae and phylogenetic trees were inferred using three tree-making algorithms. The organism showed a combination of phenotypic properties typical of nocardiae and formed a distinct phyletic line within the evolutionary radiation of species of the genus , being most closely related to ATCC 19247. Strain F829 was readily distinguished from representatives of species of with validly published names on the basis of phenotypic data, notably from the type strain of . It is proposed that the organism be recognized as a novel species of , sp. nov. The type strain is F829 (=AS 4.1728 =JCM 11508).
