IX. Reported Host Range:
X. citri appears to be pathogenic to all cultivated species of Rutaceae, at least
when artificially inoculated [1,10]. The natural host range of X. campestris pv.
aurantifolii strains may be more limited than that of X. citri, but this may be a
matter of degree of disease severity, due to differences in virulence, infection
efficiency, and/or dissemination abilities of these two different xanthomonads.
In artificial inoculations, at least some strains (pathotype B) of X. campestris
pv. aurantifolii appear to have the same potential host range as X. citri.
Race-specific avirulence may account for the host range differences between
pathotypes B and C of X. campestris pv. aurantifolii.
