An actinomycete, designated SA181T, was isolated from Saharan soil in the Hoggar region (south Algeria) and was characterized taxonomically by using a polyphasic approach. The morphological and chemotaxonomic characteristics of the isolate were consistent with the genus Saccharothrix, and 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis confirmed that strain SA181T was a novel member of the genus Saccharothrix. DNA–DNA hybridization values between strain SA181T and its closest phylogenetic neighbours, the type strains of Saccharothrix longispora, Saccharothrix texasensis and Saccharothrix xinjiangensis, were clearly below the 70 % threshold. The genotypic and phenotypic data showed that the isolate represents a novel species of the genus Saccharothrix, for which the name Saccharothrix hoggarensis sp. nov. is proposed, with the type strain SA181T ( = DSM 45457T  = CCUG 60214T).
