Abstract

An actinobacterial strain, RMV-1378, isolated from a cold desert of the Indian Himalayas, was subjected to polyphasic taxonomic characterization. The strain formed branching, non-fragmenting vegetative hyphae and did not produce diffusible pigments. Neither aerial mycelium nor spore formation was observed. The G+C content of the DNA was 72·0 mol%. The strain had chemotaxonomic characteristics typical of the genus and was closely related (99·3 % 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity) to , currently the only species with a validly published name. However, the results of DNA–DNA hybridization experiments showed 51·9 % relatedness with the type strain of . On the basis of the above data and the physiological and biochemical distinctiveness of RMV-1378 (=MTCC 6194=JCM 12472=DSM 44848), this strain should be classified as the type strain of a novel species of , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed.
