Abstract/Notes Abstract At least six begomovirus species have been
reported infecting tomato in Venezuela. In this study the
complete genomes of two tomato-infecting begomovirus
isolates (referred to as Trujillo-427 and Zulia-1084) were
cloned and sequenced. Both isolates showed the typical
genome organization of New World bipartite begomoviruses,
with DNA-A genomic components displaying 88.8%
and 90.3% similarity with established begomoviruses,
for isolates Trujillo-427 and Zulia-1084, respectively.
In accordance to the guidelines for begomovirus species
demarcation, the Trujillo-427 isolate represents a putative
new species and the name “Tomato wrinkled mosaic virus”
is proposed. Meanwhile, Zulia-1084 represents a putative
new strain classifiable within species Tomato chlorotic
leaf distortion virus, for which a recombinant origin is
