Senna italica Mill. plants exhibiting yellowing and stunting symptoms typical of begomovirus infection were collected in Oman. Molecular characterization using begomovirus and betasatellite primers in polymerase chain reaction followed by rolling circle amplification, cloning and analysis of sequences revealed the S. italica plants were infected by an isolate of Chilli leaf curl virus and tomato leaf curl betasatellite. The study describes the etiology of a yellow vein disease, identified for the first time, affecting a common weed in Oman.
