© 2018 Springer International Publishing AG, part of Springer Nature The taxonomic provenance of a filamentous actinobacterial strain isolated from a desert soil was established using a polyphasic approach. The strain has chemotaxonomic and morphological properties consistent with its classification in the genus Saccharothrix. It forms a distinct branch in the Saccharothrix 16S rRNA gene tree, related to the type strain of Saccharothrix saharensis (96.7%) but was distinguished readily from it using a combination of phenotypic properties. The genotypic and phenotypic data show that the strain represents a novel species in the genus Saccharothrix, for which the name Saccharothrix tharensis sp. nov. is proposed with the type strain TD-093T (= KCTC 39724T = MCC 2832T).
