Abstract

sp. nov. is proposed for an aerobic, oxidase- and catalase-positive actinomycete that was isolated from the above-ground part of a plant ( sp., in the family ). The strain is characterized by white colonies, fragmenting hyphae that penetrate into agar media and chemotaxonomic properties that are typical of the genus . Analysis of 16S rDNA sequences confirmed that the strain belongs to the genus and revealed its close phylogenetic relationship with . DNA–DNA pairing studies showed that the strain belongs to a separate genomic species; this is consistent with its distinction from other species at the phenotypic level. The G+C content of the DNA was 69·0 mol%. The type strain is VKM Ac-1800 (=UCM Ac-623).
