Phenuiviridae - Tenuivirus
Tenuivirus is the only genus of plant viruses in the family Phenuiviridae. The genus includes viruses which are similar to Rice stripe virus. The particles are characteristically thin (3–6 nm in width) and thread-like, highly flexuous and of undefined lengths. The multipartite genomes contain negative and ambisense components, RNA3 has always ambisense organization. The ssRNAs have 5´ and 3´ terminal base complementarity.
The viruses have some similarities with those classified in the family Bunyaviridae. However, the number of genome components (four or five) and the apparent lack of a membrane bound virus particle differs from other genera of that family.
Currently, the following species have been entered into the system:
