*Subscription may be required
An isolate of Japanese iris necrotic ring virus (JINRV) was detected from a plant of Iris ensata Thunb. growing in Western Australia, and the sequence of its complete genome (4019 nucleotides) was determined. The deduced replicase and coat proteins shared 75 % and 72 % amino acid identities, respectively, with those of the only other sequenced isolate of JINRV, from Japan. This is the first report of JINRV in Australia, and the first beyond Japan.
