Abstract Viruses in the genus Emaravirus contain 5–8 negative genomic RNAs and cause severe diseases of plants. In this study, a novel emaravirus, provisionally named Actinidia emaravirus 2 (AcEV-2), was identified from a kiwifruit tree showing leaf mottle and chlorosis symptoms. The genome of AcEV-2 consisted of at least six RNAs (RNAs 1–6) with sizes of 7079, 2252, 1387, 1514, 1744 and 1233 nucleotides (nts), respectively. Proteins encoded by RNAs1–4 of AcEV-2 shared the highest amino acid (aa...

Botryosphaeria dothidea is an important pathogenic fungus that causes serious diseases in fruits and trunks of many wood plant species worldwide. In this study, 28 B. dothidea strains isolated from pear trunk samples showing stem wart or canker symptoms were used to detect double-stranded RNA (dsRNA) viruses. The dsRNA bands with the size of ~ 1.0 to ~ 6.0 kbp were examined from ten strains. Here, we reported a novel dsRNA mycovirus, tentatively named as Botryosphaeria dothidea victorivirus 2 (B...
