A polyphasic study was carried out to establish the taxonomic positions of six strains isolated from diverse soil samples and provisionally assigned to the genus Kitasatospora. The isolates were found to have chemical and morphological properties consistent with their classification as Kitasatospora strains. Direct 16S rRNA gene sequence data confirmed the taxonomic position of the strains following the generation of phylogenetic trees by using three tree-making algorithms. Five of the isolates were considered to merit species status using complementary genotypic and phenotypic data. These organisms were designated Kitasatospora arboriphila sp. nov. (HKI 0189T=2291-120T=DSM 44785T=NCIMB 13973T), Kitasatospora gansuensis sp. nov. (HKI 0314T=2050-015T=DSM 44786T=NCIMB 13974T), Kitasatospora nipponensis sp. nov. (HKI 0315T=2148-013T=DSM 44787T=NCIMB 13975T), Kitasatospora paranensis sp. nov. (HKI 0190T=2292-041T=DSM 44788T=NCIMB 13976T) and Kitasatospora terrestris sp. nov. (HKI 0186T=2293-012T=DSM 44789T=NCIMB 13977T). The remaining organism, isolate HKI 0316 (=2122-022=DSM 44790=NCIMB 13978), was considered to be a strain of Kitasatospora kifunensis on the basis of 16S rRNA gene sequence, DNA-DNA relatedness and phenotypic data. © 2004 IUMS.
