A viroid was isolated from Iresine herbstii plants using the bidirectional PAGE method for analysis of small circular RNA molecules. The viroid was transmitted to viroid-free Iresine herbstii plants of the cultivar 'Aureoreticulata' by mechanical inoculation. Infected plants did not develop any symptoms. The new viroid species has been named Iresine viroid (IrVd). It is a member of the potato spindle tuber viroid group and consists of 370 nucleotides, 227 G+C, 143 A+U (GC content, 61.4%).
