A bacterial strain, named For3T, was isolated from forest soil sampled in Champenoux, France. Based on its 16S rRNA gene sequence, the strain was affiliated to the family Streptomycetaceae and, more specifically, to the genus Streptomyces. The strain had 99.93% 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity to its closest relative strains Streptomyces pratensis ATCC 33331T, Streptomyces anulatus ATCC 27416T, Streptomyces setonii NRRL ISP-5322T and Kitasatospora papulosa NRRL B-16504T. The phylogenomic tree using the genome blast distance phylogeny method showed that the closest relative strain was Streptomyces atroolivaceus NRRL ISP-5137T and that For3T represents a new branch among the Streptomyces. Genome relatedness indexes revealed that the average nucleotide identity and digital DNA-DNA hybridization values between For3T and its closest phylogenomic relative (S. atroolivaceus NRRL ISP-5137T) were 88.39 and 39.2 %, respectively. The G+C content of the genome was 71.4 mol% and its size was 7.96 Mb with 7492 protein-coding genes. Strain For3T harboured complete metabolic pathways absent in the closest relative strains such as cellulose biosynthesis, glycogen degradation I, glucosylglycerate biosynthesis I. Anteiso-C15:0, iso-C15:0, anteiso-C17:0 and MK-9(H4)/MK-9(H6) were the predominant cellular fatty acids and respiratory quinones, respectively. Phenotypic and genomic data supported the assignment of strain For3T to a novel species Streptomyces silvae sp. nov., within the genus Streptomyces, for which the type strain is For3T (=CIP 111908T=LMG 32186T).
