This paper describes groundnut viral diseases observed in West Africa. Six viruses are identified and their main properties are reported here: peanut clump, groundnut rosette, groundnut eyespot, groundnut crinkle, tomato spotted wilt and groundnut chlorotic spotting viruses. Four other diseases are described in part: groundnut streak, groundnut mosaic, groundnut flecking and groundnut golden mosaic diseases. Some of them are economically very important such as the two types of rosette, peanut clump and tomato spotted wilt diseases.
Others are apparently of minor importance though they occur relatively frequently and show a wide distribution, such as groundnut eyespot, groundnut crinkle, groundnut streak and groundnut golden mosaic diseases. The others appear occasionally but are nevertheless described: some which are very infectious, as groundnut chlorotic spotting disease could become very important within a few years.
