First Report of Tomato chlorotic spot virus in Hoya wayetii and Schlumbergera truncata

C. A. Baker and S. Adkins

February 2015


To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report of TCSV infection of H. wayetii and S. truncata from any location, although other tospoviruses are known to infect these and related plant species. The identification of these two diverse plant species as the first reported natural ornamental hosts of TCSV has implications for TCSV epidemiology and management in ornamental and vegetable crops, which frequently share production space.
