Abstract

The is a family of large, icosahedral viruses with double-stranded DNA genomes ranging in size from 103 to 220 kbp. Members of the subfamily infect ectothermic vertebrates (bony fish, amphibians and reptiles), whereas members of the subfamily mainly infect insects and crustaceans. Infections can be either covert or patent, and in vertebrates they can lead to high levels of mortality among commercially and ecologically important fish and amphibians. This is a summary of the current International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses (ICTV) Report on the taxonomy of the which is available at www.ictv.global/report/iridoviridae.
