During a survey in a tomato field in Luziânia (Goiás State, Brazil), a single plant with mottling, chlorotic spots, and leaf distortion was found. A new bipartite begomovirus sequence was identified using nanopore sequence technology and confirmed by Sanger sequencing. The highest nucleotide sequence identity match of the DNA-A component (2596 bases) was 81.64% with tomato golden leaf deformation virus (HM357456). Due to the current species demarcation criterion of 91% nucleotide sequence identity for DNA-A, we propose this virus to be a new member of the genus Begomovirus, named "tomato mottle leaf distortion virus".
