Comments and References:

Pseudomonas hibiscicola = Pseudomonas beteli = Xanthomonas maltophilia
From the J. P. Euzeby web site: "Pseudomonas hibiscicola Moniz 1963 (Approved Lists 1980) and Pseudomonas beteli corrig. (Ragunathan 1928) Savulescu 1947 (Approved Lists 1980) are misnamed and should be transferred in the genus Xanthomonas Dowson 1939 (Approved Lists 1980). Pseudomonas hibiscicola, Pseudomonas beteli corrig. and Xanthomonas maltophilia (Hugh 1981) Swings et al. 1983 are heterotypic synonyms. According to the Bacteriological Code (1990 revision) Pseudomonas hibiscicola and Xanthomonas maltophilia should be renamed Xanthomonas beteli because beteli is the oldest specific epithet. The authors [Van den Mooter & Swings 1990] do not feel however the need to formally propose nomenclatural changes."
