Micromonospora is a genus of aerobic, and form a branched mycelium; they occur as saprotrophic forms in soil and water. Various species are sources of aminoglycoside antibiotics, which spellings often ends with -micin, unlike most other aminoglycoside names that end with -mycin to highlight the very different species from which they originate (e.g. neomycin and streptomycin, produced by Streptomyces spp.).
