The understanding of the stimuli perceived by these parasitoids to accept and exploit a potential host may support the development of artificial hosts for their in vitro rearing. The most common structures involved in the host selection process in parasitoids are the antenna and the ovipositor. Sensilla present on these structures are involved in host(More)
Orchid fleck virus (OFV) is an unassigned negative-sense, single-stranded (−)ssRNA plant virus that was previously suggested to be included in the family Rhabdoviridae, order Mononegavirales.

Mosaic symptoms in Mirabilis jalapa plants from a public garden in the city of São Paulo, Brazil, were associated with the presence of Tomato chlorotic spot virus (TCSV-Mir-BR07). TCSV-Mir-BR07 was mechanically transmitted to healthy M. jalapa plants. Phylogenetic analysis revealed a monophyletic group formed by South American TCSV isolates separate to(More)
