Intrasporangiaceae is an Actinomycete family that is paraphyletic with respect to the families Dermatophilaceae and Dermacoccaceae, i.e. the families Dermatophilaceae and Dermacoccaceae are nested within the clade Intrasporangiaceae. The family is named after the type genus Intrasporangium. The type species of Intrasporangium (I. calvum) forms endospores; however, most other species in this family do not form spores, including other members of the genus Intrasporangium.


The currently accepted taxonomy is based on the List of Prokaryotic names with Standing in Nomenclature (LPSN) [1] and National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI)[2] and the phylogeny is based on 16S rRNA-based LTP release 106 by The All-Species Living Tree Project [3]
