Abstract

A halotolerant, non-spore-forming actinobacterium was isolated from a soil sample from the west of China. The strain, designated YIM 70093 (=CCTCC AA 001024=DSM 44683), comprised Gram-positive, non-motile, diphtheroid and irregular rods. It grew in 0–25 % KCl (KCl could be substituted by NaCl or MgCl.6HO), with optimum growth at 10 % KCl, and its optimal pH and cultivation temperature were 7·2 and 28 °C, respectively. On the basis of its morphological, physiological and phylogenetic characteristics, strain YIM 70093 should be classified in the genus . However, it is sufficiently different from hitherto described species to be considered as a novel species, for which the name sp. nov. is proposed.
