The broad and vague phenotypic definition allowed the genus Pseudomonas to become a dumping ground for incompletely characterized polarly flagellated, gram-negative, rod-shaped, aerobic bacteria, and a large number of species have been accommodated in the genus Pseudomonas. The 16S rRNA sequences of 128 valid and invalid Pseudomonas species, which included almost valid species of the genus Pseudomonas listed in the Approved Lists of Bacterial Names, were obtained: sequences of 59 species were…

Taxonomic heterogeneity of the collection strains of fluorescent pseudomonads

Taxonomic heterogeneity of collection strains of the fluorescent pseudomonads is indicated and the necessity of identification of them considering the requirements of phylogenetic bacterial taxonomy is demonstrated.

Pseudomonas indica sp. nov., a novel butane-utilizing species.

These two butane-utilizing bacteria isolates were shown to belong to one species but to have characteristics distinct from those of validly described species of Pseudomonas (sensu stricto).

Pseudomonas : Molecular Phylogeny and Current Taxonomy

The use of Pseudomonas selective PCR primers allows the detection of PseUDomonas in environmental samples and demonstrates the high diversity of the genus and that the total species diversity ofThe genus has not been fully described yet.

Pseudomonas pachastrellae sp. nov., isolated from a marine sponge.

The marine sponge isolates KMM 330(T) and KMM 331 could be distinguished from the other recognized Pseudomonas species based on a unique combination of their phenotypic characteristics, including growth in 8 or 10 % NaCl, the absence of pigments, the inability to denitrify and lack of carbohydrate utilization.

Fluorescent pseudomonads associated with the phyllosphere of grasses; Pseudomonas trivialis sp. nov., Pseudomonas poae sp. nov. and Pseudomonas congelans sp. nov.

Three of the studied ribotypes represented novel species and could be easily distinguished by a negative arginine dihydrolase reaction, and one ribotype was closely related to potentially plant-pathogenic fluorescent pseudomonads and differed in certain phenotypic features from its phylogenetic neighbours.

In-silico Taxonomic Classification of 373 Genomes Reveals Species Misidentification and New Genospecies within the Genus Pseudomonas

A large-scale analysis of all Pseudomonas genomes with species designation and re-evaluated their taxonomic assignment via in silico genome-genome hybridization and/or genetic comparison with valid type species found high pairwise average nucleotide identity indicating species-level similarity.

Pseudomonas taiwanensis sp. nov., isolated from soil.

A novel Gram-negative, rod-shaped, motile, non-spore-forming bacterial strain, CMS(T), isolated from soil was characterized using phenotypic and molecular taxonomic methods and suggested to represent a novel species, Pseudomonas taiwanensis sp.

Pseudomonas peli sp. nov. and Pseudomonas borbori sp. nov., isolated from a nitrifying inoculum.

Sixteen Gram-negative, rod-shaped, non-spore-forming isolates obtained from a nitrifying inoculum showed that the isolates belonged to various groups within the genus Pseudomonas, and one group of isolates could be assigned to pseudomonas migulae and a second to PseUDomonas veronii.

Phylogenomic Analyses of the Genus Pseudomonas Lead to the Rearrangement of Several Species and the Definition of New Genera

This work aimed to investigate the classification of species of the genus Pseudomonas on the basis of the analyses of the type strains whose genomes are currently available and proposes the creation of three new genera.



The phylogeny of the genera Chryseomonas, Flavimonas, and Pseudomonas supports synonymy of these three genera.

It is concluded that Chryseomonas and Flavimonas are junior subjective synonyms of Pseudomonas.

Systematic study of the genus Vogesella gen. nov. and its type species, Vogesella indigofera comb. nov.

Both 5S r RNA and 16S rRNA analyses demonstrated that the isolates and strains ATCC 19706T and ATCC 14036 were members of the beta subdivision of the Proteobacteria and were closely related to Chromobacterium violaceum ATCC 12742T but sufficiently distinct to warrant placement in a new genus.

Polyphasic Taxonomy in the Genus Burkholderia Leading to an Emended Description of the Genus and Proposition of Burkholderia vietnamiensis sp. nov. for N2-Fixing Isolates from Rice in Vietnam

The taxonomic position of nitrogen-fixing strains that were isolated from rhizosphere macerates of rice cultivated in the Binh Thanh region of Vietnam was determined by using polyphasic taxonomy, and it was concluded that the genus Burkholderia should be restricted to the following species.

Genotypic Relationships and Taxonomic Localization of Unclassified Pseudomonas and Pseudomonas-Like Strains by Deoxyribonucleic Acid:Ribosomal Ribonucleic Acid Hybridizations

The deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA):ribosomal ribonucleic acid (rRNA) hybridization technique was used to reveal the relationships and taxonomic positions of an additional 83 strains belonging to 43

Transfer of pseudomonas plantarii and Pseudomonas glumae to Burkholderia as Burkholderia spp. and description of Burkholderia vandii sp. nov

Plant-associated bacteria were characterized and are discussed in relation to authentic members of the genus Pseudomonas sensu stricto and it is proposed that Pseudomanas plantarii and Pseudoms glumae should be transferred to the genus Burkholderia.

Note: Transfer of Pseudomonas nautica to Marinobacter hydrocarbonoclasticus

A combination of genotypic and phenotypic properties was used to determine the relatedness between the type strains of Pseudomonas nautica and Marinobacter hydrocarbonoclasticus, finding that the two strains were highly similar and should be considered members of the same species.

Chryseomonas polytricha gen. nov., sp. nov., a Pseudomonas-Like Organism from Human Clinical Specimens and Formerly Known as Group Ve-1

The new genus and species Chryseomonas polytricha is proposed for a group formerly called Ve-1, which is rod shaped, aerobic, gram negative, yellow pigmented, motile by multitrichous polar flagella, and oxidatively saccharolytic, but they do not produce cytochrome oxidase.

Classification of Pseudomonas diminuta Leifson and Hugh 1954 and Pseudomonas vesicularis Büsing, Döll, and Freytag 1953 in Brevundimonas gen. nov. as Brevundimonas diminuta comb. nov. and Brevundimonas vesicularis comb. nov., respectively.

The results of DNA-rRNA hybridization studies indicated that these two species belong to a separate genus in the alpha subclass (rRNA superfamily IV) of the Proteobacteria, for which the name Brevundimonas is proposed.
