In this study, a novel mycovirus designed Colletotrichum gloeosporioides ourmia-like virus 1 (CgOLV1) was isolated from a filamentous phytopathogenic fungus, Colletotrichum gloeosporioides. The virus has a genome of 2,516 nucleotides and contains a large open reading frame (ORF) encoding an RNA-dependent RNA polymerase (RdRp). Phylogenetic analysis indicated that CgOLV1 is located in the ourmia-like mycovirus clade, whose members are related to plant ourmiaviruses. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report of an ourmia-like mycovirus in C. gloeosporioides.
