A new disorder exhibiting flower crinkle on Phalaenopsis orchids bearing white flowers has been observed in Taiwan, China and Japan for several years. This disorder decreased the flower longevity and was considered as a physiological syndrome. The objective of this study was to identify and characterize the real causal agent of this new Phalaenopsis disorder. Five plants of Phalaenopsis hybrids "V3" (Phal. Yukimai x Phal. Taisuco Kochdian) with flower crinkle symptoms were collected and tested by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay with antisera against 18 viruses. The extract of leaves and flowers from one diseased plant (96-Ph-16) reacted positively only to antiserum against Odontoglossum ringspot virus (ORSV), while those from the other four plants (96-Ph-7, 96-Ph-17, 96-Ph-18 and 96-Ph-19) reacted positively to the antisera against ORSV and Cymbidium mosaic virus (CymMV). Five ORSV isolates, one each from flowers of those five diseased Phalaenopsis orchids, were established in Chenopodium quinoa. A CymMV culture was isolated from the flowers of one of the ORSV/CymMV mix-infected Phalaenopsis orchids (96-Ph-19). To determine the causal agent of the flower crinkle disease, healthy Phalaenopsis seedlings were singly or doubly inoculated with the isolated ORSV and/or CymMV. Results of back inoculation indicated that ORSV is the sole causal agent of the crinkle symptom on petals of Phalaenopsis orchid. The CP gene of the ORSV isolates from this study shared 97.3-100% nucleotide identity and 96.2-100% amino acid identity with those of 41 ORSV isolates available in GenBank. This is the first report demonstrating ORSV as the sole virus causing flower crinkle disease on Phalaenopsis orchids.
