We sampled and analyzed 43 Poaceae plants from the Pacific Ocean island of Tonga for the presence of circular DNA viruses. From these samples, we recovered three gemycircularvirus genomes, which share > 99% identity, from Brachiaria deflexa (n= 2) and sugarcane (n=1). These genomes share < 61% genome-wide identity with other gemycircularvirus sequences in public databases.
