Pseudomonas The Pseudomonadaceae are a family of bacteria, including Pseudomonas, Cellvibrio , together with the Azotobacter group. This group contains several named genera: Azomonas, Azorhizophilus , and Azotobacter. Many members of this group produce different derivatives of the flourecent pigment pyoveridne . The Azotobacteriaceae were recently published as belonging in this family as well1. Rediers H, Vanderleyden J, De Mot R. 2004. Azotobacter vinelandii: a Pseudomonas in disguise?
