The Enterovirus type species is Enterovirus C.

The three poliovirus serotypes now belong to the species Enterovirus C and the species Poliovirus no longer exists.

It has been proposed to rename the enterovirus and rhinovirus species to remove host names (currently being considered by the ICTV Executive Committee): Approved Feb 2013.

Current species name* Former species name  
Enterovirus A Human enterovirus A  
Enterovirus B Human enterovirus B  
Enterovirus C Human enterovirus C  
Enterovirus D Human enterovirus D  
Enterovirus E Bovine enterovirus (group A)  
Enterovirus F Bovine enterovirus (group B)  
Enterovirus G Porcine enterovirus B  
Enterovirus H Simian enterovirus A  
Enterovirus J unclassified simian viruses  
Rhinovirus A Human rhinovirus A  
Rhinovirus B Human rhinovirus B  
Rhinovirus C Human rhinovirus C  
* Enterovirus I has been skipped because it may be confused with the number 1 (one).

Genome organisation:

VPg+5’UTRIRES-I[1A-1B-1C-1D/2Apro-2Bviro-2C/3A-3BVPg-3Cpro-3Dpol]3’UTR-poly(A)

The former species Porcine enterovirus A has been renamed Porcine saplelovirus and moved to a new genus, Sapelovirus.
