This genus includes plant viruses which are similar to Potato virus X. The particles are non-enveloped, very long and flexuous, 470-1000 nm or longer with a diameter of 12-13 nm. They frequently aggregate in the cytoplasm. The viruses are readily transmissible by sap (they are stable in sap for several weeks) and might also spread via insects.
