Brief

To the best of our knowledge this is the first report of TCSV in Puerto Rico and the first report of TCSV infection of jimsonweed from any location. The identification of this solanaceous weed as a TCSV host has implications for its management in Puerto Rico, Caribbean, and Florida vegetable production.
