The genus Enterovirus consists of 12 species: Enterovirus A, Enterovirus B, Enterovirus C, Enterovirus D, Enterovirus E, Enterovirus F, Enterovirus G, Enterovirus H, Enterovirus J, Rhinovirus A, Rhinovirus B and Rhinovirus C. In 2016 a further species has been proposed, "Enterovirus I".

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.

A new enterovirus has been found in camels (Dromedary camel enterovirus)

Enterovirus and rhinovirus species names have been changed to remove references to host species names (approved by the ICTV 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 I" (proposed) -  
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.
