Abstract

The taxonomic position of an actinomycete isolated from a brown hypermagnesian ultramafic soil was examined using a polyphasic approach. The organism, which was designated SBHS Strp1, was found to have chemical and morphological properties typical of strains. It was most closely associated with , , , and on the basis of 16S rRNA gene sequence data, and showed a unique pattern of phenotypic properties that distinguished it from the type strains of these taxa. The combined genotypic and phenotypic data show that the organism merits description as a novel species of . The name proposed for the novel species is sp. nov.; the type strain is SBHS Strp1 (=DSM 44776=NRRL B-24324).
