Name: Dasheen Mosaic Potyvirus
Acronym:  DsMV
Genus:  Potyvirus

Transmission: Transmitted by a vector; an insect; Myzus persicae, Aphis craccivora (Morales and Zettler, 1977) and Aphis gossypii (Gollifer et al., 1977), but apparently not by Pentalonia nigronervosa (Morales and Zettler, 1977) or Rhopalosiphum padi (Gollifer et al., 1977); Aphididae. Transmitted in a non-persistent manner. Virus transmitted by mechanical inoculation; not transmitted by contact between plants; not transmitted by seed (Hartman et al., 1972; Zettler and Abo El-Nil, 1979); not transmitted by pollen.

Geographical Distribution:   Probably distributed worldwide (especially in tropical and subtropical regions). Spreads in China.
Diagnostically Susceptible Species and Symptoms: 
Philodendron selloum - systemic mosaic, vein clearing, malformation.
Caladium hortulanum, Colocasia spp., Xanthosoma spp. - systemic mosaic.
Dieffenbachia spp. - systemic mosaic, epinasty, systemic and local necrosis.
Philodendron verrucosum - local necrosis; not systemic.
Zantedeschia spp. - systemic mosaic, malformation.
