Abstract

Occurrence of Chilli veinal mottle virus in Himalayan butterfly bush (Buddleja crispa).

Abstract

Some leaves of the Himalayan butterfly bush (Buddleja crispa) with mild chlorosis and mosaic symptoms were collected from the Kinnaur area of Himachal Pradesh, India during 2003. ELISA and RT-PCR identified the causal agent as Chilli veinal mottle virus. This is thought to be the first report of this potyvirus occurring on B. crispa in nature.
