Quick scan SB26-29 (isometric virus, family unknown)


• Little information is available about this virus and at present the exact identity of the virus is unknown. 

• The virus is probably transmitted by the psyllid species Russelliana solanicola. 

• In absence of a natural vector, the impact will probably be limited (the virus might be transmitted by planting material but virus free material could be derived in certification systems in absence of a natural vector) 

• The probability of introduction of the virus seems low because of the EU import prohibition of plants for planting of Solanaceae
