Abstract A virus isolated from stunted eggplant (Solanum melanogena L.) with severe vein yellowing, was identified as a strain of eggplant mottled dwarf rhabdovirus (EMDV‐J) on the basis of host range, transmissibility and serology. The isolate is seemingly a unique strain of eggplant mottled dwarf virus that differs from the reported strains in the host range. The virus was recovered from Withania somnifera, a perennial plant, which suggests the availability of a virus reservoir at times when the Jordan valley is practically free from cultivated eggplants.
