Abstract

Two bacterial strains isolated from different hospitals in Japan were subjected to a polyphasic analysis. Strains IFM 0406 and IFM 0706, producers of novel terpenoid antibiotics, were found to have morphological, biochemical, physiological and chemotaxonomic properties consistent with their classification in the genus , except for the presence of MK-8(H) as one of the predominant menaquinones in addition to the major menaquinone MK-8(H). The 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity of strains IFM 0406 and IFM 0706 was 99.9 %, and the closest members of to these strains were the type strains of and , showing similarity of 97.5 and 97.1 %, respectively. Based on their characteristic phenotypic and phylogenetic properties, a novel species of the genus , sp. nov. is proposed for the two strains. The type strain is IFM 0706 (=JCM 13033=DSM 44935=NBRC 100888).
