Catenuloplanes japonicus gen. nov., sp. nov., nom. rev., a New Genus of the Order Actinomycetales
Thirteen strains of motile arthrospore-bearing actinomycetes were isolated from soils in Japan, India, and Nepal and the name Catenuloplanes japonicus gen. nov., sp.
Kineococcus aurantiacus gen. nov., sp. nov., a New Aerobic, Gram-Positive, Motile Coccus with meso-Diaminopimelic Acid and Arabinogalactan in the Cell Wall
A new aerobic, gram-positive, motile coccus isolated from soil is described, which has the following characteristics: Menaquinone MK-9(H2); G+C content of DNA of 73.9 mol%; meso-diaminopimelic acid, glutamic acid, and alanine in a molar ratio of 1:1:2 (type A1γ); and arabinose and galactose in the cell wall.
Intrageneric relationships among Micromonospora species deduced from gyrB-based phylogeny and DNA relatedness.
The gyrB-based classification of genus Micromonospora agrees with the results of the DNA-DNA hybridization studies, indicating that this classification method is useful for analysing the phylogenetic relationships of high G+C Gram-positive bacteria at the level of the genomic species.

A new genus, Couchioplanes, is proposed for motile actinomycetes based on morphological, physiological, and chemotaxonomic data and the results of DNA-DNA hybridization and comparative 16S rRNA studies, for these organisms.

The revived genus Lentzea is emended to include galactose, mannose and traces of ribose as diagnostic whole-cell sugars and MK-9(H4) as the principal menaquinone and elimination of tuberculostearic acid as a diagnostic component in the fatty acid profile.
A new genus of the family Micromonosporaceae, Polymorphospora gen. nov., with description of Polymorphospora rubra sp. nov.
Two actinomycete strains were isolated from soil surrounding mangrove roots and showed chemical and phenotypic properties that were different from members of all of the other genera of this family.
A new genus of the order Actinomycetales, Spirilliplanes gen. nov., with description of Spirilliplanes yamanashiensis sp. nov.
A new genus, spirilliplanes, is proposed for this organism, Spirilliplanes yamanashiensis sp.
Phylogenetic study of the species within the family Streptomycetaceae
The present phylogenetic study examines almost all described species within the family Streptomycetaceae based on 16S rRNA gene sequences and illustrates the species diversity within this family, which is observed to contain 130 statistically supported clades, as well as many unsupported and single member clusters.
A new genus of the order Actinomycetales, Virgosporangium gen. nov., with descriptions of Virgosporangium ochraceum sp. nov. and Virgosporangium aurantiacum sp. nov.
Four motile spored strains were isolated from soil samples collected in Japan and analysis of 165 rDNA sequences suggested that these organisms fall into a distinct clade within the family Micromonosporaceae, for which a new genus, Virgosporangium gen. nov, is proposed.
Acrocarpospora gen. nov., a new genus of the order Actinomycetales.
The taxonomic position of two actinomycete strains isolated from soil was studied and the name Acrocarpospora gen. nov. is proposed for a new genus containing the isolates and Streptosporangium corrugatum.
