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
Picornaviridae taxonomic proposals being considered by the ICTV
Executive Committee in July 2014
The reference for the Picornaviridae section in the
9th ICTV Report is as follows:

Subsequent taxonomic changes are

The latest ICTV taxonomic
proposals were approved in March 2014 and are details in the
