Longispora albida gen. nov., sp. nov., a novel genus of the family Micromonosporaceae A novel actinomycete strain was isolated from a soil sample collected in Japan by using gellan gum as a solidifying agent. Spore-chains from the short sporophores were straight and each had more than 20 spores per chain. Spores possessed no motility. Cell-wall peptidoglycan contained meso-diaminopimelic acid, glycine, alanine and glutamic acid; whole-cell hydrolysates contained arabinose, galactose and xylose.

Mycolic acids were not detected. The diagostic phospholipid was phosphatidylethanolamine. Cellular fatty acids included heptadecenoic (C 17 : 1 ), 14-methylpentadecanoic (i-C 16 : 0 ) and octadecenoic (C 18 : 1 ) acids. The G+C content of the DNA was 70 mol%. On the basis of morphogical and chemotaxonomic properties and phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rDNA sequence data, it is proposed that this strain should be classified in a novel genus and species, Longispora albida gen. nov., sp. nov., in the family Micromonosporaceae. The type strain is
