Chrysanthemum chlorotic mottle viroid (CChMVd)
The viroid replicates in the host chloroplast and infects chrysanthemums in Asia. It has been also reported from Europe and North America.
The infected plants show yellow-green mottling, chlorosis and stunting. The viroid is transmitted by contaminated tools. The circular RNA molecule contains around 400 nucleotides and has a branched secondary structure.
