Parietaria mottle virus (PMoV)

This virus has been reported to infect Solanaceae crops and other plants in southern Europe. It has been originally described from Parietaria officinalis where it causes bright yellow mosaic or mottling. On tomatoes, infections by the virus result in necrosis of the apical leaves and top necrosis. Fruits show rings and brown patches with necrotic scars around the edges. Infected tomato plants usually recover after 2-4 weeks. Transmission by pollen and seeds from surrounding Parietaria plants to tomato and pepper has been demonstrated (e.g. see Aramburu et al., 2010).
