In this report, we present the first description of the complete genome sequences of a new monopartite begomovirus isolated from tomato with symptoms of interveinal yellowing of leaves collected in the region of Worodougou in the northwest of Côte d'Ivoire and provisionally named "tomato interveinal yellowing virus" (ToIYV). The DNA-A-like nucleotide sequences of ToIYV share the highest nucleotide sequence identity (83%) with tobacco leaf curl Zimbabwe virus (ToLCZWV). Phylogenetic analysis confirmed that ToIYV is related to Old World monopartite begomoviruses. The discovery of a member of a new virus species on diseased tomato plants confirms the high genetic diversity in monopartite begomoviruses in West Africa and stresses the importance of maintaining epidemiological crop surveillance.
