A carboxydotrophic actinomycete strain, AT10(T) (= DSM 41779(T) = KCTC 9909(T)), was the subject of a pollyphasic study. The morphological and chemical properties of the strain were found to be consistent with its assignment to the genus Streptomyces. The organism formed a distinct phyletic line within the 16S rDNA Streptomyces tree, and DNA-DNA relatedness experiments further confirmed that it formed a distinct genomic species. The strain was also distinguished from related species using phenotypic properties. Strain AT10(T), therefore, merits species status within the genus Streptomyces; the name Streptomyces thermospinisporus sp. nov. is proposed for this new taxon.
