Abstract

A polyphasic study was undertaken to establish the taxonomic status of a Gram-positive, aerobic actinomycete, strain HPA177, isolated from a marine sponge, . The organism formed branching, non-fragmenting vegetative hyphae and produced black pigment. Chemotaxonomic characteristics were consistent with its assignment to the genus . Analysis of the 16S rRNA gene sequence showed that strain HPA177 formed a robust clade with type strains of the genus , but was distinct from them. A number of phenotypic characteristics also readily distinguished strain HPA177 from species of the genus with validly published names. On the basis of the above data, it is proposed that strain HPA177 represents a novel species, sp. nov. The type strain of is HPA177 (=CGMCC 4.2500=JCM 13436).
