Identification of Maize Mosaic Virus in Florida. O. E. Bradfute, Ohio State University, Ohio Agricultural Research and Development Center, Wooster 44691. J. H. Tsai, University of Florida Agricultural Research and Education Center, Fort Lauderdale 33314. Plant Dis. 67:1339-1342. Accepted for publication 13 June 1983.

Maize mosaic virus was identified in southern Florida on the basis of leaf symptoms in corn (Zea mays), rhabdovirus particle morphology and structure, perinuclear virus particle accumulation, immunoelectron microscopy, and persistent transmission by Peregrinus maidis. This confirms the identification of maize mosaic virus in the continental United States.
