In June 2016, virus-like symptoms such as mottling, mosaic, and narrowing were observed on tomato plants in Yangzhou city, Jiangsu Province, east China. Five leaf samples were collected from symptomatic tomato plants. Based on the results of western blotting using polyclonal antiserum to ChiVMV, PCR assays and nucleotide sequence comparisons, the causal agent was identified as Chilli veinal mottle virus (ChiVMV). This is thought to be the first report of ChiVMV in tomato in Jiangsu Province.
