A spherical virus isolated from mottled lucerne (Medicago sativa) was identified by host range, physical properties, electron microscopy, and serology as peanut stunt virus (PSV). The virus was also found in naturally infected Phaseolus vulgaris, Vigna unguiculata, Dolichos lablab, Clitoria ternata, and P. trilobus. This is the first report of PSV in the Sudan.
