Abstract

The family Sarthroviridae includes a single genus, Macronovirus, which in turn includes a single species, Macrobrachium satellite virus 1. Members of this species, named extra small virus, are satellite viruses of Macrobrachium rosenbergii nodavirus, an unclassified virus related to members of the family Nodaviridae. Both viruses have isometric, spherical virions, infect giant freshwater prawns and together cause white tail disease, which is responsible for mass mortalities and severe economic losses in hatcheries and farms. Infection is caused by both vertical and horizontal transmission of virus. Aquatic insects act as a carrier to transmit the disease in prawns. This is a summary of the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses (ICTV) Report on the taxonomy of the Sarthroviridae, which is available at www.ictv.global/report/sarthroviridae.
