Abstract

An actinomycete, strain B60, was isolated from a soil sample in Napier, Western Cape province of South Africa. Based on 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis and chemotaxonomy, strain B60 was identified as a member of the genus . Strain B60 produced an antibiotic with activity against , and , but not against . Significant differences in morphological and physiological characteristics indicate that strain B60 represents a novel species of the genus . The name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is B60 (=DSM 44846=NRRL B-24319).
