Abstract

Genomic and antigenic characterization of Aguacate virus, a tentative species of the genus , and three other unclassified viruses, Armero virus, Durania virus and Ixcanal virus, demonstrate a close relationship to one another. They are distinct from the other nine recognized species within the genus. We propose to designate them as a new (tenth) serogroup or species () within the genus. The four viruses were all isolated from phlebotomine sandflies ( sp.) collected in Central and South America. Aguacate virus appears to be a natural reassortant and serves as one more example of the high frequency of reassortment in this genus.
