A field survey was conducted in Yamoussoukro Côte d’Ivoire in order to collect pepper leaves harboring the Pepper Yellow vein disease (PYVD). Five local farmers pepper fields located around the lakes of Yamoussoukro were surveyed. Ten samples were PCR- amplified using universal degenerated core-Cp primers and sequenced. Blast analyses showed that the PepYVV-Mali was responsible of the PYVD symptoms within two samples. Phylogenetic analyses showed that the two identified PepYVV-Mali formed a new clade different from the previous PepYVV-Mali isolated in Burkina Faso and Côte d’Ivoire. The pairwise analysis confirmed this discrepancy by a sequence similarity of 95-96%.
