Abstract

An actinomycete, strain HBUM 20038, was isolated from soil from Ganjiahu Natural Reserve in Xinjiang Province, in north-western China, and then characterized using a polyphasic approach. 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis confirmed that strain HBUM 20038 was a member of the genus , and the morphological and chemotaxonomic characteristics of the strain were also consistent with those of species of . DNA–DNA hybridization between the strain and related type strains gave relatedness values far below 70 %. These results, together with physiological characteristics, showed that strain HBUM 20038 represents a novel species within the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is HBUM 20038 (=DSM 45031 =CGMCC 4.3500).
