Abstract

Actinomycete strains isolated from lesions on equine placentas from two horses in Kentucky and one in South Africa were subjected to a polyphasic taxonomic study. Chemotaxonomic and morphological characteristics indicated that the isolates are members of the genus . On the basis of phylogenetic analysis of 16S rDNA sequences, the isolates are related most closely to . Physiological characteristics of these strains indicated that they do not belong to and DNA relatedness determinations confirmed that these strains represent three novel species of the genus , for which the names (type strain, NRRL B-24129=LDDC 9447-99=DSM 44652), (type strain, NRRL B-24131=LDDC 12275-99=DSM 44653) and (type strain, NRRL B-24133=ARC OV1 0181=DSM 44654) are proposed.
