Abstract

Two actinomycete strains, LK2-10 and LK2-5, which produced single, non-motile spores, were isolated from peat swamp forest soil in Yala Province, Thailand. A polyphasic study was carried out to establish the taxonomic position of these strains. Morphological and chemotaxonomic characteristics of these strains coincided with those of the genus . Phylogenetic analysis using 16S rRNA gene sequences also indicated that these strains should be classified in the genus and clearly separated from their closest relative, DSM 43818. Furthermore, a combination of DNA–DNA hybridization results and physiological and biochemical properties indicated that these strains were distinguished from all recognized species. These strains therefore represent a novel species, for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is LK2-10 (=JCM 12345=PCU 238=DSM 44814=TISTR 1531).
