Tomato spotted wild virus (TSWV) has become an important plant pathogen during the past 10 years in Hungary. This virus belongs to the family of Bunyaviridae, genus Tospovirus. According to the latest studies, this virus has about 1090 host plant species, including crops and weeds. In the autumn of 2009, some Aristolochia clematitis plants were collected showing symptoms of TSWV infection. On the basis of electron microscopic and molecular studies, leaf samples of Aristolochia clematitis L. found in a vineyard proved to be infected with Tomato spotted wilt virus (TSWV). This is the first report on the occurrence of TSWV in Aristolochia in Hungary.
