Groundnut eyespot disease has been observed in the northern region of the Ivory Coast (DUDERN and DOLLET 1978), and in Upper-Volta (FAUQUET, persona1 communication). Based on its physico-chemical and serological ,properties groundnut eyespot virus (GEV) is a member of the potyvirus group (DUBERON and DOLLET 1980). Physalis floridana is one of the most common weeds in contaminated groundnut fields and is easily infected with GEV by mechanical and aphid inoculation in the laboratory. Thus, this plant was coiisidered to be probably a natural host for GEV. The present paper reports results regarding the properties of a virus from diseased, field collected P. floridana and its resemblance to GEV.
