An examination of the results of phylogenetic analyses based on the sequences of fragments of the 16S rRNA, gyrB and rpoD genes, and the discrimination of genomovars based on siderophore diversity within the genus Pseudomonas, has added important taxonomic tools in the characterization of Pseudomonas stutzeri. Eighteen reference strains, nine newly identified hydrocarbon-degrading strains and three strains showing relevant physiological characteristics of P. stutzeri, together with the type strains of four related species, were included in the study. A novel genomovar within the species is described. A summary of the methodology used in these studies and the results of our attempts to define a solid internal subdivision of this important species within the genus Pseudomonas are presented and discussed.
