Abstract

The discovery and full-genome sequences of two isolates of a fourth capulavirus species are reported. The viruses were discovered during a viral metagenomics survey of uncultivated Plantago lanceolata plants in the Åland archipelago of south western Finland. The newly discovered viruses apparently produce no symptoms in P. lanceolata. They have a genome organization that is very similar to that of the three known capulavirus species and additionally share between 62.9 and 67.1% genome-wide sequence identity with the isolates of these species. It is therefore proposed that these viruses be assigned to a new capulavirus species named “Plantago lanceolata latent virus”.
