Technical Abstract: The Baculoviridae is a family of large viruses with circular dsDNA genomes ranging from 80 to 180 kbp. Virions consist of enveloped rod-shaped nucleocapsids and are embedded in distinctive occlusion bodies measuring 0.15 to 15 µm. The occlusion bodies consist of a matrix composed of a single viral protein expressed at high levels during infection. Members of this family exclusively infect larvae of insect orders Lepidoptera, Hymenoptera, and Diptera. This is a summary of the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses (ICTV) Report on the taxonomy of the Baculoviridae which is available at www.ictv.global/report/Baculoviridae.
