Abstract

We report an outbreak of beak and feather disease virus (BFDV) due to a novel genotype in the last re-maining wild population of the critically endangered Orange-bellied Parrot (Neophema chrysogaster). We used PCR to detect BFDV in the blood of psittacine beak and feather disease (PBFD) affected wild Or-ange-bellied Parrot nestlings in Tasmania. Phyloge-netic analysis of complete BFDV genome sequence data from infected birds supported the positioning of this clade genetically close to previous outbreaks of BFDV in captive birds in Tasmania. The detection of distinct lineages of BFDV in the remnant wild pop-ulation of orange-bellied parrots, consisting of fewer than 50 birds, suggests a role for other parrot spe-cies as a reservoir for infection by spillover into this critically endangered species.
