Numerical identification was carried out for an isolate of Streptomyces strain producing the extracellular p-lactamase inhibitor. Fifty taxonomic unit characters were tested and the data were analyzed numerically using the TAXON program. The isolate was identified to the major cluster 5 of Streptomyces and it was best matched to Streptomyces omiyaensis which is a synonym of Streptomyces exfoliatus. Therefore, it was concluded that the isolate was identified to be a strain (SMF 19) of Streptomyces exjbliatus.
