Dickeya is a genus of the family Enterobacteriaceae that consists mainly of pathogens from herbaceous plants. Dickeya is the result of the reclassification of 75 strains of Pectobacterium chrysanthemi, as well as Brenneria paradisiaca CFBP 4178, into a new genus. The genus is named for American phytopathologist Robert S. Dickey.[1] Several species in this genus, such as Dickeya dadantii, are known phytopathogens.[2][3]
