The hosts of CGMMV include cucumber, bottle gourd, melons, pumpkin, squash, watermelon, zucchini and other species. In 2014, discovery of CGMMV in Katherine prompted a biosecurity emergency response focused on eradication.

Since this time, CGMMV was detected in Queensland in April 2015 and in Western Australia in July 2016. Nationally, it is accepted that CGMMV is endemic in NT and WA and still under quarantine in QLD.
