Abstract/Summary Mastreviruses (genus Mastrevirus) are DNA-containing viruses that are transmitted by leafhoppers (Hemiptera: Cicadellidae). Most infect grasses, but a group of serologically interrelated species infects dicotyledonous plants including legumes. The first report of a dicot-infecting mastrevirus was in 1980 for Tobacco yellow dwarf virus (TYDV; syn. Bean summer death virus) in tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum) and bean (Phaseolus vulgaris) in Australia. Subsequently, TYDV was also found in chickpea in Australia. In 1993, a mastrevirus isolate named Chickpea chlorotic dwarf virus (CpCDV) was identified in chickpea in India, where it and several luteoviruses were shown to cause chickpea stunt disease. CpCDV was reported later in West Asia and North Africa. The species Bean yellow dwarf virus (BeYDV) was described first in bean in South Africa in 1997 and then in chickpea in Pakistan. Two additional species, Chickpea chlorosis virus ( CpCV) and Chickpea redleaf virus (CpRLV) have been distinguished recently in Australia. Collectively, mastreviruses are common in chickpea but uncommon in lentil.
