A novel Streptoverticillium sp. G-55 was isolated from a soil sample (collected from Panjim, Goa) which produces sclerotia under specific environmental conditions, both in liquid and solid media. It was further identified by taxonomic studies as Streptoverticillium cinnamoneum var scleroticum. The species produces a pentaene polyene macrolide antibiotic (HA-94) under submerged culture conditions which shows promising antifungal and antibacterial activity in vitro.
