Abstract

Solinviviridae is a family of picorna/calici-like viruses with non-segmented, linear, positive-sense RNA genomes of approximately 10–11 kb. Unusually, their capsid proteins are encoded towards the 3′-end of the genome where they can be expressed both from a subgenomic RNA and as an extension of the replication (picorna-like helicase–protease–polymerase) polyprotein. Members of two species within the family infect ants, but related unclassified virus sequences derive from a large variety of insects and other arthropods. This is a summary of the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses (ICTV) Report on the Solinviviridae, which is available at www.ictv.global/report/solinviviridae.
