relationship of wheat streak mosaic and barley stripe mosaic viruses to vector and nonvector eriophyid mites.large amounts of wheat streak mosaic virus (wsmv) accumulate in the midgut of its mite vector eriophyes tulipae reared on virus infected plants. masses of flexuous rod shaped virus particles persisted in the midgut, without degradation, for at least 5 of the 6--9 day adult life of mites. wsmv particles also were found distributed in the body cavity and in salivary glands of mites suggesting that the virus is "circulative" in e. tulipae. abacarus hystrix, a nonvector of wsmv, when reared on virus ...19807356391
