Abstract

In samples of benthic and bank river sediments of two urban rivers in Christchurch city (New Zealand), we identified and recovered isolates of Sclerotinia sclerotiorum hypovirulence-associated virus-1 (SsHADV-1), a fungus-infecting circular singlestranded DNA virus. This is the first report of SsHADV-1 outside of China and in environmental samples.
