The transmission of strawberry mottle virus (SMV) to Fragaria vesca
L. by Chaetosiphon thomasi and C. fragaefolii was studied to determine
differences between the two species. Acquisition, inoculation, and
retention phases of transmission were described. In all phases, C.
fragaefolii was found to be the more efficient vector.
