Abstract: The virulence differences of Ectropis obliqua nucleopolyhedrovirus (EoNPV) from different isolates to Ectropis obliqua and Ectropis grisescens were analyzed, which provided a basis for effectively improving the control effect of EoNPV. The virulence of EoNPV Zhejiang strain (EoNPV-ZJ) and EoNPV Jiangxi strain (EoNPV-JX) to third instar larvae of E. obliqua and E. grisescens were determined by leaf dipping. The homologous regions (hrs) of EoNPV-ZJ and EoNPV-JX were further sequenced and analyzed by multiple sequence alignment. The results indicate that the 14 d LC50 of EoNPV-JX to E. grisescens and E. obliqua were 5.95×106 PIB·mL-1 and 3.14×106 PIB·mL-1, respectively, while the 14 d LC50 of EoNPV-ZJ to the two tea geometrid moths were 1.13×107 PIB·mL-1 and 5.04×106 PIB·mL-1, respectively. The hr1 of EoNPV-JX and EoNPV-ZJ were both 1 795 bp in size, containing 11 complete palindrome sequences, and hr3 were both 665 bp in size, containing 3 complete palindrome sequences, which were the same as EoNPV Anhui strain (EoNPV-AH). However, the hr2 regions of the three strains were different. The hr2 of EoNPV-JX was 864 bp in size and contained 7 complete palindrome sequences, and it was 1 168 bp in size and contained 12 complete palindrome sequences in EoNPV-ZJ, all of which were less than the 18 complete palindrome sequences of hr2 in EoNPV-AH. Our study suggests that the virulence of different strains of EoNPV to E. obliqua were higher than that of its related species, E. grisescens, while the toxicity of EoNPV-JX to E. grisescens was more than that of EoNPV-ZJ. The sensitivity of E. obliqua to EoNPV was higher than that of E. grisescens. The virulence of EoNPV might be related to the number of palindromes of hr2.
