Abstract

The taxonomic positions of two thermophilic actinomycetes isolated from an arid Australian soil sample were established based on an investigation using a polyphasic taxonomic approach. The organisms had chemical and morphological properties typical of members of the genus and formed distinct phyletic lines in the 16S rRNA subclade. The two organisms were distinguished from one another and from the type strains of related species of the genus using a range of phenotypic properties. Based on the combined genotypic and phenotypic data, it is proposed that the two isolates be classified in the genus as sp. nov. (type strain GY088 = NCIMB 14699 = NRRL B-24836) and sp. nov. (type strain GY115 = NCIMB 14700 = NRRL B-24837).
