Streptomyces lincolnensis is a bacterium species in the type genus Streptomyces.

D-Lincosamine, an antibiotic from Streptomyces lincolnensis; it is the carbohydrate component of lincomycin. Structure shows the alpha-anomer

S. lincolnensis produces the antibacterial lincomycin.[2] It also produces valienol, a C-7 cyclitol similar in structure to valienamine.
