Abstract

Three viruses isolated from anopheline mosquitoes in Indonesia have been identified as bluetongue and epizootic hemorrhagic disease viruses. Another virus isolate showed no relationship to other orbiviruses tested and should be regarded as a new virus; the name Golok is proposed for it. The mosquitoes were collected in 1980 and 1981 in a program designed to isolate flaviviruses infecting humans. It is apparent that such collections of arthropods which feed on large mammals could be screened for other viruses which may infect domestic livestock.
