Name derived from carnation latent. The group has flexuous, rod-shaped particles measuring 620-700 nm in length, and 13 nm in width, containing a single species of ss-RNA. Members of the group have a relatively narrow host range and with the exception of some of the legume virus members, do not cause economically important diseases. They are transmitted by sap inoculation and by aphids in a non-persistent manner (Wetter and Milne, 1981). The group is described in CMI/AAB description 259. flora latent, pea streak (112), poplar mosaic (75), potato M (87), potato S (60), red clover vein mosaic (22), and shallot latent viruses (250).
