Spinaches showing dark green mosaic symptoms were used for identification of broad bean wilt virus. In host reaction test, that virus caused local lesions on the inoculated leaves and mosaic symptoms on upper leaves of Chenopodium amaranticolor, Chenopodium quinoa and Vicia faba, and developed mosaic symptoms on Physalis floridana, Spinacia oleracea, Nicotiana tabacum, (White burley, Bright yellow) Nicotiana glutinusa. In agar gel-diffusion test, the virus showed positive reaction with broad bean wilt virus antiserum. Spherical virus particles with size of 25nm in diameter were observed in electron microscope.
