The taxonomic position of an actinomycete isolated from a brown hypermagnesian ultramafic soil was examined using a polyphasic approach. The organism, which was designated SBHS Strp1T, was found to have chemical and morphological properties typical of Amycolatopsis strains. It was most closely associated with Amycolatopsis kentuckyensis, Amycolatopsis lexingtonensis, Amycolatopsis rifamycinica, Amycolatopsis pretoriensis and Amycolatopsis tolypomycina on the basis of 16S rRNA gene sequence data, and showed a unique pattern of phenotypic properties that distinguished it from the type strains of these taxa. The combined genotypic and phenotypic data show that the organism merits description as a novel species of Amycolatopsis. The name proposed for the novel species is Amycolatopsis plumensis sp. nov.; the type strain is SBHS Strp1T (=DSM 44776T =NRRL B-24324T). © 2005 IUMS.
