An actinomycete strain, isolated from the marine sponge Axinella polypoides collected from Banyulssur-Mer, France, was characterized using a polyphasic approach. Based on its chemotaxonomic and morphological characteristics, strain Pol001 T belongs to the genus Streptomyces. The strain is characterized by LL-diaminopimelic acid in the cell wall, menaquinones MK-9(H 4 , H 6 , H 8 ) and a DNA G+C content of 71.0 mol%. It forms a separate phyletic line based on phylogenetic analyses of the nearly

Strain Pol001 T could be differentiated from other closely related Streptomyces species with validly published names by phenotypic and genotypic analysis. DNA-DNA hybridization between strain Pol001 T and closely related reference strains further confirmed that strain Pol001 T represents a novel taxon of the genus Streptomyces. Therefore, it is proposed that strain Pol001 T represents a novel species in the genus Streptomyces, Streptomyces axinellae sp. nov.; the type strain is Pol001 T (5DSM 41948 T 5CIP 109838 T ). Abbreviations: A 2 pm, diaminopimelic acid; ASW, artificial seawater. The GenBank/EMBL/DDBJ accession number for the 16S rRNA gene sequence of strain Pol001 T is EU683612.
