Surveys for TSWV presence and distribution on vegetable, ornamental and tobacco plants were conducted during 2016 in open fields and greenhouses in different locations in Republic of Srpska, district of Bosnia and Herzegovina. One hundred and twelve samples were taken and preliminarily tested for TSWV presence with DAS-ELISA. Positive samples were double-checked in RT-PCR assays using specific primer sets and subsequently partial sequences of RdRp and N region genes were characterized. Serological and molecular results revealed twenty-seven TSWV positive samples (two peppers and twenty-five tobacco plants). Moreover, phylogenetic analyses showed that these isolates share the same gene pool and a similar evolutionary pattern mainly with other isolates present in Europe and Russia.
