Abstract

The taxonomic status of an actinomycete isolated from sediment collected from the Mariana Trench was established using a combination of genotypic and phenotypic data. Isolate MT8 had chemotaxonomic and morphological properties consistent with its classification in the genus , and formed a distinct phyletic line in the 16S rRNA gene tree together with the type strain of . The isolate was readily distinguished from the latter, and from representatives of other species, using DNA–DNA relatedness and phenotypic criteria. Predominant cellular fatty acids were oleic, palmitic and tuberculostearic acids and a hexadecenoic acid. The DNA G+C content was 65.2 mol%. It is apparent that the isolate belongs to a novel species of . Strain MT8 (=DSM 44944=NCIMB 14085) was thus considered to be the type strain of a novel species in the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed.
