Abstract A feathery mottle pattern, typical of dasheen mosaic virus infection, was observed on the leaves of one Japanese and two traditional New Zealand cultivars of taro (Colocasia esculenta Schott) grown in the Auckland area of New Zealand. Electron microscopy and serological testing confirmed the presence of dasheen mosaic virus.
