Plant viruses affecting animals

There is a wealth of information regarding plant viruses that are able    
to replicate in animal (insects) hosts or vectors. If I remember well
this ability is important while "classify" them in "taxonomy" groups.
If they replicate in the vector they are named to be "persistent" if
they do not... well NON-PERSISTENT

I also know of one rare example with Viroids. Dr. Jorge Galindo-Alonso
-now retired- demonstrated replication of VIROIDS in the aphid
Myzus persicae

I could get some references if manyone is interested.
