Abstract

Three actinomycetes isolated from the surfaces of rocks in a medieval slate mine were examined in a polyphasic taxonomic study. Chemotaxonomic and morphological characteristics of the isolates were typical of strains of the genus . The isolates had identical 16S rRNA gene sequences and formed a distinct phyletic line towards the periphery of the clade, being most closely related to . The organisms shared a wide range of genotypic and phenotypic markers that distinguished them from their closest phylogenetic neighbours. On the basis of these results, a novel species, sp. nov., is proposed. The type strain is HKI 0457 (=DSM 44993=NRRL B-24474).
