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 February 2019 and are detailed in the ICTV Master Species List 2018. 19 new proposals for 2019 can be found here.

The reference for the Picornaviridae section in the 10th ICTV Report is as follows:

Zell, R., Delwart, E., Gorbalenya, A.E., Hovi, T., King, A.M.Q., Knowles, N.J., Lindberg, A.M., Pallansch, M.A., Palmenberg, A.C., Reuter, G., Simmonds, P., Skern, T., Stanway, G., Yamashita, T. and ICTV Report Consortium.

Subsequent taxonomic changes are detailed by Adams et al. (2017), King et al. (2018) and Walker (2019):
