Abstract

During a study of the distribution of actinomycetes in a mangrove zone, a strain forming spore chains borne on the tip of short sporophores arising directly from the agar surface was isolated from soil. The isolate contained glutamic acid, glycine, alanine and -diaminopimelic acid as cell-wall amino acids, menaquinone MK-10(H, H), fatty acid type 2d and xylose in the whole-cell hydrolysate. The 16S rRNA gene sequence of the isolate formed a monophyletic cluster with the members of the genus in the family . On the basis of morphological and chemotaxonomic characteristics, phylogenetic analysis and DNA–DNA hybridization, a novel species of the genus is proposed for strain TT 97-02 (=NBRC 100142=DSM 44745), sp. nov.
