An actinomycete, strain Z33(T), was isolated from a cyanobacterial biofilm in the Cave of Bats, near Zuheros (Cordoba, southern Spain). 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis showed that strain Z33(T) formed a distinct phyletic line within the genus Agromyces. This isolate could be readily distinguished from representatives of all recognized Agromyces species on the basis of a broad range of phenotypic characteristics and DNA-DNA relatedness data. Genotypic and phenotypic properties indicate that strain Z33(T) represents a novel species, for which the name Agromyces subbeticus sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is Z33(T) (=HKI 0340(T)=DSM 16689(T)=NCIMB 14025(T)).
