Abstract

The family includes viruses that replicate in hyperthermophilic archaea from the genus . The non-enveloped, hollow, cylindrical virions are formed from a coiling fibre that consists of two intertwining halves of a single circular nucleoprotein filament. A short appendage protrudes from each end of the cylindrical virion. The genome is circular, positive-sense, single-stranded DNA of 24 893 nucleotides. This is a summary of the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses (ICTV) report on the family , which is available at ictv.global/report/spiraviridae.
