Fimoviridae - Emaravirus (genus)

The genus Emaravirus belongs to the family Fimoviridae under the order of Bunyavirales. The members are plant viruses similar to the European mountain ash ringspot-associated virus. They are transmitted by eriophyid mites, possibly in a circulative manner. Apart from the type species, important members are High Plains wheat mosaic virus and Fig mosaic virus.

The viruses contain negative-sensed single-stranded multipartite RNA genomes. In some cases double membrane-bound virus-like particles with a diameter of 80 to 200 nm are present in infected tissue.

For a review see Mielke-Ehret & Mühlbach, 2012.

Currently, the following species have been entered into the system:
