Nocardiopsis alba, copyright Leibniz-Institut DSMZ.

Belongs within: Streptosporangiales.

Nocardiopsis is a genus of filamentous bacteria forming aerial mycelia of long chains of smooth spores (Korn-Wendisch & Kutzner 1992).

Characters (from Korn-Wendisch & Kutzner 1992): Aerial mycelium with long chains of spores; spore surface smooth. Meso-diaminopimelic acid present; no diagnostic sugars; phospholipid type phosphatidylcholine; mycolic acids absent; menaquinones 10(H2)/(H4)/(H6); G+C content 64–69%.
