Bean common mosaic virus (BCMV; Family Potyviridae, genus Potyvirus) infects Phaseolus vulgaris crops in many regions of the world. It is transmitted in a non-persistent manner by aphids and is also readily seed-transmitted (Hongying et al., 2002). The disease it causes decreases crop production. In Australia, BCMV has been reported in New South Wales, Queensland, Tasmania and Victoria, based on serology and amino acid composition (Moghal & Francki, 1976; 1981). However, there is no information about isolates or its origin, and no further confirmation or any sequence data for BCMV from Australia. It has not been reported in the Northern Territory, South Australia or Western Australia.
