Amycolatopsis thermalba Amycolatopsis ruanii Amycolatopsis granulosa
Abstract
The taxonomic positions of three thermophilic actinomycetes isolated from arid soil samples were established by using a polyphasic approach. The organisms had chemical and morphological features that were consistent with their classification in the genus Amycolatopsis . 16S rRNA gene sequence data supported the classification of the isolates in the genus Amycolato

Yuhushiella deserti gen. nov., sp. nov., a new member of the suborder Pseudonocardineae

Names
Amycolatopsis arida
Abstract
A thermotolerant, Gram-stain-positive, aerobic, sporangium-forming actinomycete, strain RA45T, was isolated from a desert region in Xinjiang Uigur Autonomous Region, north-western China. Comparative analysis of the 16S rRNA gene sequence and phenotypic characterization revealed that strain RA45T belonged phylogenetically to the family Pseudonocardiaceae of the suborder Pseudonocardineae. Strain RA45T showed more than 5 % 16S rRNA gene sequence divergence from recognized species of genera in the

Amycolatopsis australiensis sp. nov., an actinomycete isolated from arid soils

Names
Amycolatopsis australiensis
Abstract
The taxonomic position of a group of mesophilic actinomycetes isolated from arid Australian soils was determined using a polyphasic approach. The organisms shared chemical and morphological markers typical of members of the genus Amycolatopsis. They had identical 16S rRNA gene sequences and formed a distinct phyletic line in the Amycolatopsis mediterranei clade, being most closely related to A. mediterranei. In addition, they shared a range of phenotypic properties that distinguished them from r
