Interpretive Summary: This is the first report of a complete Tomato chlorotic spot virus genome from peanut in Haiti. A description of the symptoms and losses caused by this virus are included. This report provides a sequence data that will be useful for diagnostic method development for this emerging virus by regulatory and research scientists.

Technical Abstract: Tomato chlorotic spot virus is emerging as a significant constraint to vegetable and legume crop production in the southeastern U.S. and Caribbean basin. Diagnosis can be confused by the presence of related tospovirus species. The complete genome of a naturally occurring peanut isolate of tomato chlorotic spot virus in Haiti was determined. This will help build epidemiological knowledge of this virus and permit refined diagnostic development.
