Abstract: During 2009, a watermelon (Citrullus lanatus) plant grown in Tanzania was observed with severe symptoms of mosaic, mottling, blistering and deformation. The presence of a new Carlavirus was demonstrated in the symptomatic plants using PCR analysis and nucleotide sequencing. Following mechanical inoculations of various cucurbits, cucumber responding with mottling and mosaic, while watermelon plants showed vein-clearing and leafroll symptoms. The name cucumber vein-clearing virus (CuVCV) is proposed for this virus.
