  The genus Kobuvirus consists of three species, Aichivirus A (formerly Aichi virus), Aichivirus B (formerly Bovine kobuvirus) and  Aichivirus C.

The species Aichivirus A consists of four types: Aichi virus 1, canine kobuvirus 1, feline kobuvirus 1 and murine kobuvirus 1.

The species Aichivirus B consists of three types: bovine kobuvirus 1, ferret kobuvirus 1 & ovine kobuvirus 1.

The species Aichivirus C consists of a single type: porcine kobuvirus 1.

Caprine kobuvirus, cattle kobuvirus and European roller kobuvirus may represent three further candidate species.

Other kobu-like viruses have been identified in bats and rabbits.

3A polypeptide

Recently, Greninger et al. (2012) have report that the N-terminal glycines of Aichi virus, bovine kobuvirus and human salivirus (klassevirus) are myristoylated despite not having an N-terminal canonical myristoylation motif (GxxxT/S).
