Two ornamental crops were recently observed with symptoms typical of tospovirus infection in central Florida. Diseased Hoya wayetii, commonly known as porcelainflower or waxflower, plants were found in an Orange County nursery by a horticultural inspector in March 2014. Symptoms included slightly sunken chlorotic spots with necrotic margins (Fig. 1). Diseased Schlumbergera truncata (Haw.) Moran, false Christmas cactus, plants were found in a Lake County nursery by a horticultural inspector in…

First Report of Tomato chlorotic spot virus in Sweet Basil (Ocimum basilicum) and Purslane (Portulaca oleracea) in Florida

Since 2012, the tospovirus Tomato chlorotic spot virus (TCSV) has emerged as a pathogen of vegetables, ornamentals, and weeds in Florida and the Caribbean and been detected in tomato, bell pepper, waxflower, and American black nightshade.

Field distribution and disease incidence of tomato chlorotic spot virus, an emerging virus threatening tomato production in South Florida

Results of the surveys indicate that TCSV is the predominant virus among the three known orthotospoviruses [tomato spotted wilt virus (TSWV), groundnut ringspot virus (GRSV) and T CSV] present in south Florida.

Role of the Insect Supervectors Bemisia tabaci and Frankliniella occidentalis in the Emergence and Global Spread of Plant Viruses.

The plant virus-supervector interaction offers exciting opportunities for basic research and global implementation of generalized disease management strategies to reduce economic and environmental impacts.

Hoya spp. (Waxflower)



First Report of Capsicum chlorosis virus Infecting Waxflower (Hoya calycina Schlecter) in the United States.

A survey for Ca CV in known hosts is essential to determine the geographic distribution of CaCV in Hawaii, as this virus poses a considerable threat to tomato, chili pepper, and phalaenopsis orchid production in Hawaii and the United States.

Emergence of Groundnut ringspot virus and Tomato chlorotic spot virus in Vegetables in Florida and the Southeastern United States.

Further spread of GRSV and TCSV in the United States is possible and detection of mixed infections highlights the opportunity for additional reassortment of tospovirus genomic RNAs.

Key West Nightshade, a New Experimental Host for Plant Viruses.

Key West nightshade (Solanum bahamense) is a perennial solanaceous weed found in the extreme southern portion of Florida and may be a useful host for virus culture collections and for studies involving large numbers of virus isolates where fresh, infected tissue is continuously required.

Tospoviruses—an Australian perspective

The detection, distribution, molecular and biological properties, vector relations and control of tospoviruses present in Australia, including Tomato spotted wilt virus (TSWV), Capsicum chlorosis


Tomato spotted wilt virus is considered as the most widespread and to have the largest host-range and the availability of an up-to-date list of TSWV host plants is a potentially useful reference for researchers and farmers.

First record of Tomato chlorotic spot virus in the USA

A tospovirus was identified in tomato plants from two counties in Florida by reverse transcription-PCR and sequencing of portions of the S, M and L genomic segments and produced symptoms similar to those reported for TCSV.

First Report of Tomato chlorotic spot virus (TCSV) in Tomato, Pepper, and Jimsonweed in Puerto Rico

The identification of this solanaceous weed as a TCSV host has implications for its management in Puerto Rico, Caribbean, and Florida vegetable production.
