Tomato yellow leaf curl virus (TYLCV) belongs to the Begomovirus genus within the Geminiviridae family. Begomoviruses are exclusively transmitted by Bemisia tabaci (Gennadius) (Homoptera: Aleyrodidae). Tomato yellow leaf curl diseases (TYLCD) are associated to a complex of viral species, including Tomato yellow leaf curl virus (TYLCV), Tomato yellow leaf curl Mali virus (TYLCMLV), Tomato yellow leaf curl Sardinia virus (TYLCSV), Tomato yellow leaf curl Malaga virus (TYLCMalV), and Tomato yellow leaf curl Axarquia virus (TYLCAxV) and all including rather similar symptoms on tomato (L. esculentum) plants. Hence, TYLCD-associated virus isolates belonging to two or more different species, and sometimes recombinants, have been found in the same country.
