Cytoplasmic-polyhedrosis viruses from Bombyx mori, Malacosoma disstria, and Orgyia leucostigma were isolated and purified by zonal sucrose gradient centrifugation. They were tested in double diffusion and immunoelectrophoresis on clelulose acetate membranes. It was found that the viruses from M. disstria and O. leucostigma are very closely related, and share at least five antigens one of which, at least, is shared with the virus from B. mori.
