Abstract

The genus contains a set of diverse bacterial strains, most of which are known for their pathogenicity on annual crops and fruit trees causing economically important plant diseases. Recently, five strains were isolated from -induced crown gall tissues of amaranth ( sp.) and weeping fig () plants in Iran. Phenotypic characteristics (. biochemical tests and pathogenicity features) and whole genome sequence-based core-genome phylogeny followed by average nucleotide identity and digital DNA–DNA hybridization calculations suggested that these gall-associated strains belong to two new species within the genus . In this study, we provide a formal species description for these new species where sp. nov. is proposed for the strains isolated from weeping fig with FX4 (=CFBP 8703=DSM 112530) as type strain. The name sp. nov. is proposed for the strains isolated from amaranth with AmX2 (=CFBP 8902=DSM 112529) as type strain.
