These pages are a window onto the thoughts of the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses (ICTV) Picornaviridae Study Group. This should allow virologists around the world to view proposed amendments to the taxonomy and classification of picornaviruses and comment on them.

The latest ICTV taxonomic proposals were approved in April 2016 and are detailed in the ICTV Master Species List 2015.

Picornaviridae taxonomic proposals which were approved by the ICTV Executive Committee in August 2016 and await final ratification by the ICTV membership in early 2017.

The reference for the Picornaviridae section in the 9th ICTV Report is as follows:
