Hatta, Department of Plant Pathology, Waite Agricultural Research Institute, Glen Osmond, South Australia 5064. Plant Dis. 66:337-339. Accepted for publication 12 November 1981.

A virus isolated from severely diseased cornflower (Centaurea cyanus) plants in China was identified as a strain of cucumber mosaic virus based on host range, particle morphology, serology, and nucleic acid analysis. Its serological relationship to several cucumber mosaic virus and tomato aspermy virus isolates present in Australia was determined.
