Like macluraviruses, members of the type species, Bellflower veinal mottle virus, lack the P1 region of most potyvirids. The HC-Pro lacks the conserved potyvirus aphid transmission motifs R/KITC and PTK. Isolates of bellflower veinal mottle virus share low (22–27%) nucleotide and amino acid sequence identities to macluraviruses.
Bellflower veinal mottle virus has a positive-sense RNA genome of 8,259 nt.
Genome organization resembles that of members of the genus Macluravirus.
Isolates of Bellflower veinal mottle virus were obtained from bellflower (Campanula takesimana) that exhibited veinal mottle symptoms in South Korea. The virus is probably not aphid transmitted because the HC-Pro lacks the conserved potyvirus aphid transmission motifs R/KITC and PTK.
