Pseudomonas viridiflava is a fluorescent, Gram-negative, soil bacterium that is pathogenic to plants.[1] It was originally isolated from the dwarf or runner bean, in Switzerland. Based on 16S rRNA analysis, P. viridiflava has been placed in the P. syringae group.[2] Following ribotypical analysis misidentified strains of Pseudomonas syringae pv. ribicola (which infects Ribes aureum) and Pseudomonas syringae pv. primulae (which infects Primula species) were incorporated into this species.[3]
