Interpretive Summary: The identification and characterization of the biological and genetic properties of 33 Potyvirus isolates revealed the presence of seven distinct species with varying levels of genetic diversity. This information provides insights into the emergence of potyviruses from native and weedy vegetation to effect cultivated crops.

Technical Abstract: Coat protein sequences of 33 Potyvirus isolates from legume and Passiflora spp. were sequenced to determine the identity of infecting viruses. Phylogenetic analysis of the sequences revealed the presence of seven distinct virus species.
