virus Alloherpesviridae

Alloherpesviridae is a family of viruses within the order Herpesvirales. This family includes the species that infect fish and amphibians. Phylogenetic studies have confirmed the validity of this family and suggest that it may be divided into two clades: one consisting of viruses from cyprinid and anguillid hosts and the other of viruses from ictalurid, salmonid, acipenserid and ranid hosts.1

This family was created in 2005.

Four genera have been recognised in this family but a number of species remain unclassified. The family appears to be divisible into three families2 but this probably needs confirmation with additioanl studies before being generally accepted.
