Abstract

The taxonomic position of a soil isolate, strain SA 233, recovered from Saharan soil from Algeria was established using a polyphasic approach. This isolate has been previously reported to produce three novel dithiolopyrrolone antibiotics, and preliminary chemotaxonomic and morphological characteristics suggested that it was representative of a member of the genus . Phylogenetic analysis of the strain from 16S rDNA sequences, along with a detailed analysis of morphological, chemotaxonomic and physiological characteristics, indicates that it belongs to the genus and represents a novel species that is readily distinguished from all recognized species. The name sp. nov. is proposed for the isolate, with type strain SA 233 (=NRRL B-24137=DSM 44581).
