Abstract

The family Artoviridae was created in 2018 for the established monospecific genus Peropuvirus and six new species of invertebrate viruses that had all been discovered by high-throughput sequencing. Artoviruses have negative-sense RNA genomes of about 12 kb and produce enveloped, spherical particles that are 100–130 nm in diameter. Hosts include parasitoid wasps, barnacles, pillworms, woodlice, copepods and odonates. This is a summary of the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses (ICTV) Report on the family Artoviridae, which is available at www.ictv.global/report/artoviridae.
