Abstract

The taxonomic position of a lemon-yellow-pigmented actinobacterium, strain K22-21, isolated from a soil sample from Lahaul-Spiti Valley in the Indian Himalayas, was determined using a polyphasic approach. The strain had phenotypic and chemical properties that were consistent with its classification in the genus . Alignment of the 16S rRNA gene sequence of strain K22-21 with sequences from DSM 9580, DSM 14215 and DSM 12453 revealed similarities of 98.5, 96.8 and 96.6 %, respectively. However, the level of DNA–DNA relatedness between strain K22-21 and was 55.1 %. The novel strain could be distinguished from type strains of the three species of the genus using DNA–DNA relatedness and phenotypic data. Based on these differences, strain K22-21 (=MTCC 7154=DSM 17612) should be classified as the type strain of a novel species of , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed.
