Abstract

Bats are important reservoirs of many viruses with zoonotic potential worldwide, including Europe. Among bat viruses, members of the family remain a neglected group. We performed viral metagenomic analyses on bat faecal samples, collected in Hungary in 2013. In the present study we report the first molecular data and genomic characterization of a novel picornavirus from the bat species in Europe. Based on phylogenetic analyses, the novel bat picornaviruses unambiguously belong to the genus and were highly divergent from other bat-derived picornaviruses of the genus. Although the Hungarian viruses were most closely related to Mischivirus A, they formed a separate monophyletic branch within the genus.
