Until recently, inaccurate classification of many actinomycete
taxa has hindered not only the development of efficient
selective isolation procedures (Goodfellow  and  Williams, 
1986, Goodfellow, 1988) but also the establishment of
actinophage typing systems, for reliable identification of
actinomycete species or genera (Prauser, 1984). Consequently
the use of actinophage as a natural tool has not been accepted
as an effective and inexpensive aid to taxonomy of many novel
genera and could not be exploited for selective isolation
purposes.
