Abstract

In order to clarify the taxonomic position of an actinobacterium from the Roman catacomb of Domitilla, a combination of phenotypic characterization, phylogenetic analysis based on the 16S rRNA gene sequence and DNA–DNA relatedness studies was used. The results from the polyphasic taxonomic study of this organism showed that strain HKI 0342 (=DSM 16849=NCIMB 14033) should be considered as the type strain of a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed.
