Candidatus Liberibacter is a genus of Gram-negative bacteria. Members of the genus are plant pathogens mostly transmitted by psyllids. The genus was originally spelled Liberobacter.

Candidatus Liberibacter are carried in the hemolymph and salivary glands of psyllids. Since psyllids feed on sap, this provides bacteria the entry to phloem of the plant. They induce significant metabolic and regulatory changes that damage the plants transport system and affects plants defense systems. These impairments have downstream negative effects on citrus microbiome of the infected plants.
