Actinomycetospora is a genus in the phylum Actinobacteria (Bacteria).[1]

Etymology[edit]

The name Actinomycetospora derives from:
New Latin noun actinomyces -etis (from Greek noun aktis, aktinos (ἀκτίς, ἀκτῖνος), a beam and Greek noun mukēs -ētos, mushroom or other fungus), an actinomycete; Greek feminine gender noun spora (σπορά), a seed and, in biology, a spore; New Latin feminine gender noun Actinomycetospora, referring to an actinomycete with spore chains.[2]

Species[edit]

The genus contains a single species[dubious ],[2] namely A. chiangmaiensis ( Jiang et al. 2008, (Type species of the genus).; New Latin feminine gender adjective chiangmaiensis, pertaining to Chiang Mai, a city in the north of Thailand in the vicinity of which the type strain was found.)[3]
