A distinct bipartite begomovirus was isolated in northeastern Brazil infecting Macroptilium lathyroides showing symptoms of yellow mosaic. The complete genome (DNA-A and DNA-B) of the virus was cloned using rolling circle amplification and subsequently sequenced. Clones presented the typical genomic organization of a New World bipartite begomovirus. Based on the current taxonomic criteria established for the genus Begomovirus, the virus corresponds to a new species, showing highest nucleotide identity with other Brazilian begomoviruses that infect leguminous hosts. In phylogenetic analysis the virus clustered with bean golden mosaic virus. Recombination events were not detected. We propose the name Macroptilium common mosaic virus (MacCMV) for the virus reported in this study.
