Abstract A previously unknown, cutaneous papillomavirus (Papovaviridae) in a brushtail possum (Trichosurus vulpecula) was demonstrated. This represents one of the first viruses reported in this species. Possum papillomas were identified by typical wart-like appearance and histology. Papillomavirus particles were detected by electron microscopy in tissue homogenates following purification and negative staining. The polymerase chain reaction amplified a conserved portion of the LI gene which was purified and sequenced. Comparison of the DNA and deduced amino acid sequence from the possum papillomavirus with other papillomavirus sequences, together with phylogenetic analysis, indicated that this was a new papillomavirus.
