Cowpea mild mottle virus (CPMMV) is a member of the Carlavirus group of plant viruses. Unlike other Carlaviruses, which are aphid transmitted, CPMMV is transmitted by the silver leaf whitefly. CPMMV has a very wide geographical range, occurring mainly in countries where grain legumes are grown. CPMMV was first detected in Australia in 2016 on bean and soybean in Queensland. French bean, soybean and cowpea are the most commonly infected, with other hosts including mung bean, asparagus bean, adzuki bean and lima bean. A wide range of symptoms can develop including leaf mottling and mosaic. Seed pods may be deformed and surface discolouration may be present. Also referred to as angular mosaic because of the yellow, angular leaf spots.
