Abstract

A Gram-positive, aerobic, non-motile actinobacterium strain, designated YIM 45607, was isolated from a rhizosphere soil sample in Kunming, south-west China. Chemotaxonomically, the isolate contained chemical markers that supported its assignment to the genus . On the basis of 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity analysis, strain YIM 45607 formed a new subline within the genus , with as its closest phylogenetic neighbour (98.2 % 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity to the type strain). However, DNA–DNA hybridization demonstrated that strain YIM 45607 was different from DSM 20307 (35.4 % relatedness). Based on polyphasic analysis, strain YIM 45607 could be clearly distinguished from other species of the genus . The isolate therefore represents a novel species of , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is strain YIM 45607 (=KCTC 19149 =DSM 45001).
