Abstract

The taxonomic position was determined for a soil actinomycete, isolate KM-4927, that produced the antibiotic hitachimycin. The strain was assigned to the genus on the basis of 16S rDNA analysis, where it formed a separate clade. The strain is characterized by grey aerial cell mass, spiral spore chains and a rugose spore surface, menaquinones of the MK-9(H, H, H) types and cell-wall chemotype I. DNA–DNA reassociation with 21 phylogenetically neighbouring type strains showing similar morphological characteristics to strain KM-4927 indicated that this isolate is only moderately related to other species. On the basis of genomic and physiological properties, the novel species sp. nov. is proposed; the type strain is strain KM-4927 (=JCM 11712=NRRL B-24202).
