This species consists of seven genome-sequenced strains. The genomes are monophyletic with phylogenomic analyses. This clade shares an ancestor with the genomes of the GTDB species "Pantoea rwandensis_B". The minimal pairwise ANI among the seven genomes is as low as 97%. ANI between the seven genomes and and the closest relative is approximately 94%, showing that the two clades represent two different, but closely related, species. Isolation sources include insects, like stink bugs (Plautia stali, Sibaria englemani, Taurocerus sp.), and an ant (Atta laevigata) fungus garden, as well as plants (Garcinia morella) and other environmental sources. Overall, this species shares plants and insects as isolation sources with many other Pantoea species, and no adaptation to any specific environment is evident.
