Abstract

The taxonomic position of a group of mesophilic actinomycetes isolated from arid Australian soils was determined using a polyphasic approach. The organisms shared chemical and morphological markers typical of members of the genus . They had identical 16S rRNA gene sequences and formed a distinct phyletic line in the clade, being most closely related to . In addition, they shared a range of phenotypic properties that distinguished them from representatives of all of the species classified in this clade. The combined genotypic and phenotypic data indicate that the strains merit species status within the genus . The name proposed for the novel species is sp. nov.; the type strain is GY048 (=DSM 44671=NCIMB 14142).
