Abstract

Yellow tailflower mild mottle virus (YTMMV) was previously reported from two wild species of Anthocercis (family Solanaceae) in Western Australia. Here, a survey of 89 wild and cultivated plants from 14 species was done to determine if YTMMV occurred more widely in indigenous plants, and if it naturally infected cultivated exotic plants. The survey extended 1500 km, from Coral Bay to Esperance, and revealed plants of nine solanaceous species to be naturally infected with YTMMV, including Capsicum annuum plants from a commercial planting.
