Natsudaidai Dwarf Virus

What a great name for a disease!

And it's pretty hard to decide, just by looking at it, what the disease affects. Did it turn Natsudaidai into a dwarf? Probably not, diseases are hardly ever named after the patient. So is it a very small virus whose lack of hypenation would upset simonjrogers? Not exactly. It will upset simonjrogers but not through lack of punctuation but mostly because it affects satsumas, stunting the trees and reducing fruiting. A disaster indeed.

If you're wondering how I found this gem, I was searching for the meaning of the acronym NDV.
