Pseudomonas meliae is a fluorescent, Gram-negative, soil bacterium that causes bacterial gall of the chinaberry (Melia azedarach Lin.),[1] from which it derives its name. Based on 16S rRNA analysis, P. meliae has been placed in the Pseudomonas syringae group.[2] Genotypic characteristics of the causal agent of chinaberry gall were determined by Aeini and Taghavi.[3]
