A novel halophilic actinomycete strain, H23T, was isolated from a Saharan soil sample collected in Djamâa (Oued Righ region), El-Oued province, South Algeria. Strain H23T was identified as a member of the genus Actinopolyspora by a polyphasic approach. Phylogenetic analysis showed that strain H23T had 16S rRNA gene sequence similarities ranging from 97.8 (Actinopolyspora xinjiangensis TRM 40136T) to 94.8 (Actinopolyspora mortivallis DSM 44261T). The strain grew optimally at pH 6.0-7.0, 28-32 C and in the presence of 15-25 (w/v) NaCl. The substrate mycelium was well developed and fragmented with age. The aerial mycelium produced long, straight or flexuous spore chains with non-motile, smooth-surfaced and rod-shaped spores. Strain H23T had MK-10 (H 4) and MK-9 (H4) as the predominant menaquinones. The whole micro-organism hydrolysates mainly consisted of meso-diaminopimelic acid, galactose and arabinose. The diagnostic phospholipid detected was phosphatidylcholine. The major cellular fatty acids were anteiso-C 17:0 (37.4 ), iso-C17:0 (14.8 ), iso-C15:0 (14.2 ), and iso-C16:0 (13.9 ). The genotypic and phenotypic data show that the strain represents a novel species of the genus Actinopolyspora, for which the name Actinopolyspora righensis sp. nov. is proposed, with the type strain H23T (=DSM 45501T = CCUG 63368T = MTCC 11562T). © 2013 Springer Science+Business Media Dordrecht.
