Abstract: In groundnut rosette diseased groundnut plants collected near Zaria, Nigeria, a luteovirus was detected by ELISA and ISEM. In ELISA only beet western yellows virus antiserum reacted, while in ISEM luteovirus particles were trapped by antisera beet western yellows virus, potato leafroll virus, pea leafroll virus and barley yellow dwarf virus. The data are in agreement with the interpretation that the assistor of groundnut rosette virus is possibly a member of the luteovirus group.
