Clematis chlorotic mottle virus (ClCMV) is a previously undescribed virus associated with symptoms of yellow mottling and veining, chlorotic ring spots, line pattern mosaics, and flower distortion and discoloration on ornamental Clematis. The ClCMV genome is 3,880 nt in length with five open reading frames (ORFs) encoding a 27-kDa protein (ORF 1), an 87-kDa replicase protein (ORF 2), two centrally located movement proteins (ORF 3 and 4), and a 37-kDa capsid protein (ORF 5). Based on morphological, genomic, and phylogenetic analysis, ClCMV is predicted to be a member of the genus Pelarspovirus in the family Tombusviridae.
