Genus: Iflavirus


Genus: Iflavirus

Distinguishing features

Since only one genus is currently recognized, the genus description corresponds to the family description.

Virion

See discussion under family description.

Genome organization and replication

See discussion under family description.

Antigenicity

See discussion under family description.

Biology

See discussion under family description.

Species demarcation criteria

Sequence identity at the amino acid level between the capsid proteins of isolates and strains of a species is above 90%. Note that, by this definition, Laodelphax striatella honeydew virus 1 and Laodelphax striatellus iflavirus 2 (related, unclassified species) are the same species. The Iflaviridae family is expanding rapidly and will likely undergo revision in the near future.
