The first identificatIon of the tomato spotted wilt virus (TSWV) on naturally infected groundnuts in South Africa was made by the author in the 1947-48 season (Dyer, 1949). Prior to this, Simmonds (1939) had mentioned an "" unknown virus"" in Queensland and Costa (1941) had descriptionbed a ringspot of groundnut in Brazil. It was only in 1950 that Costa confirmed that his virus was spotted wilt, and Simmond's identification came in 1956.
