Abstract Tomato plants grown in the field in Murcia (Spain) in 2003 showed symptoms that could not be attributed to any known virus. The first systemic symptoms consisted of necrotic spots at the top of the plant, starting at the base of the leaflets. Necrotic spots expanded and were surrounded by a light-green or yellow area. Plants with severe pronounced necrotic spots on the leaves and obvious growth reduction were found. Locally the disease became known as ‘torrado’ (meaning roasted), which refers to the burn-like symptoms on the leaves
