Family: Rhabdoviridae

Subfamily: Gammarhabdovirinae


Distinguishing features

The viruses assigned to a genus form a monophyletic clade in well-supported Maximum Likelihood or Maximum Clade Credibility trees using full-length L sequences. The subfamily includes a single genus for viruses infecting finfish.

Genus demarcation criteria

Demarcation of genera is based upon considerations of significant differences in genome sequence, antigenicity and ecological properties (such as natural host range and geographic distribution).
