Rationalization and extension of the taxonomy of the family Parvoviridae (this proposal is also posted under invertebrate viruses)

Note from the officers: Following approval and ratification of version 3 of this proposal (2013.001a-rrV.v3), we have identified nine taxonomic changes, hitherto missing from the proposal, which are also involved in the proposed restructuring of the taxonomy of the Parvoviridae family. Each of these nine steps is needed to complete the conversion of the old taxonomic structure to the new one. Here, in version 4, the additional changes have been inserted as an Addendum. To avoid delay in introducing the new taxonomy, we are treating members’ approval of these additional changes as already implied by their approval of the new structure.
