Two actinobacteria, strains NF3 and NH11, isolated from a pine forest soil, near Torun, Poland were examined for diverse chemotaxonomic and morphological properties that placed them in the genus Catenulispora. They produced an extensively branched stable mycelium, contained LL-diaminopimelic acid as the diamino acid of the peptidoglycan, arabinose as the diagnostic whole-organism sugar, tetra-, hexa- and octa-hydrogenated menaquinones with nine isoprenoid units as the predominant isoprenologues, iso-C and anteiso-C as major fatty acids, and formed a well supported clade within the Catenulispora 16S rRNA gene tree together with Catenulispora acidiphila DSM 44928 and Catenulispora rubra DSM 44948 sharing sequence similarities with the latter of 98.8 and 99.
