Abstract
Two actinomycete strains, DF-28 and DF-32(T), were isolated from soil sampl es collected in a deciduous dipterocarp forest in Thailand. They produced l ongitudinally paired spores on the tips of short sporophores alternately br anched from aerial hyphae, and the chemotaxonomic properties of the isolate s were the same as those of members of the family Streptosporangiaceae. The se phenotypic properties, together with the results of a phylogenetic analy sis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences, indicated that these isolates should be assigned to the genus Microbispora. The two isolates showed more than 93 % DNA relatedness to each other, but their relatedness to any previously de scribed species of the genus Microbispora was only 45% or less. They were d istinguishable from previously described Microbispora spp. by a combination of physiological and biochemical properties. Therefore, a new species is p roposed for these strains, under the name Microbispora corallina sp. nov. T he type strain is strain DF-32(T) ( = JCM 10267(T)).
