Pseudomonas amygdali is a Gram-negative plant pathogenic bacterium. It is named after its ability to cause disease on almond (Prunus amygdalus) trees. Based on 16S rRNA analysis, P. amygdali has been placed in the P. syringae group. Following ribotypical analysis several pathovars of Pseudomonas syringae were incorporated into this species. It was also proposed that Pseudomonas ficuserectae, Pseudomonas meliae, and Pseudomonas savastanoi be incorporated into this species, though there is not a consensus, while others assert that Pseudomonas savastanoi is the more legitimate name.
