European mountain ash ringspot-associated emaravirus (EMARaV) is a species of the genus Emaravirus (family Fimoviridae) and causes chlorotic ringspots and mottling on Sorbus aucuparia (rowan). Symptoms similar to those associated with the disease were observed on S. aucuparia in the Tatra Mountains of Southern Poland. In June 2016 and 2017, samples were collected from both symptomatic and symptomless S. aucuparia (seven and three samples, respectively). Based on the results of polymerase chain reaction assay, the causal agent was identified as EMARaV. This is thought to be the first report of EMARaV in S. aucuparia in Poland.
