Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: Members of family Nudiviridae are large dsDNA viruses with distinctive rod-shaped nucleocapsids and circular genomes ranging from 96 to 232 kbp. Nudiviruses have been identified from a diverse range of insects and crustaceans and are closely related to baculoviruses. This is a summary of the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses (ICTV) Report on the taxonomy of the Nudiviridae, which is available at
