Colony appearances of actinomycete isolates on various agar media. The strains on plates (a) were (in a clockwise direction from the top): 1, 2 and 3 Actinoplanes spp. (AB607853*, AB607849 and AB607850); 4 and 5 Kineosporia spp. (AB607851 and AB607854); and 6 Cryptosporangium sp. (AB607852) isolated from fallen leaves. Note the filmy roll back colonies of strains 1, 2 and 3 on ISP-2 medium (arrows). The strains on plates (b) were: 1 Pseudonocardia babensis VN05-A0561T; 2 Streptomyces sp. VN07-A0015; 3 New genus candidate (2) VN08-A0300; 4 New genus candidate (1) VN08-A0400; and 5 Kineosporia babensis VN05-A0415T. The agar media (from left to right) were yeast extract-starch agar, American Type Culture Collection (ATCC) medium-172 and ISP-2. The isolates were incubated at 28 °C for 10 days. *The DDBJ accession number on base sequences of 16S ribosomal RNA (rRNA) gene.
