The description of the genus Saccharothrix is amended to include strains having either a type PII (phosphatidylethanolamine) or a type PIV (phosphatidylethanolamine and glucosamine-containing phospho-lipids) phospholipid pattern. A new antibiotic-producing species, Saccharothrix espanaensis (type strain, NRRL 15764), is described. Nocardiopsis mutabilis Shearer et al. 1983 is transferred to the amended genus as Saccharothrix mutabilis comb. nov. “Nocardiopsis mutabilis subsp. cryophilis” Takahashi et al. 1986 is described as a new species, Saccharothrix cryophilis, based on its physiological properties and lack of high levels of deoxyribonucleic acid relatedness to the previously described Saccharothrix species.
