  Hunnivirus A is a species in the genus Hunnivirus. Hunnivirus A comprises of two picornaviruses which were identified in apparently healthy domestic young cattle (Bos taurus) and sheep (Ovis aries) in Hungary during 2008-2009 (Reuter et al., 2012). The name was changed in July 2013 from "hungarovirus" at the request of the ICTV Executive Committee. The name, Hunnivirus, is derived from Hungary and Northern Ireland where the first three hunniviruses were found. Complete genome sequencing and comparative analysis showed that these two viruses are related to each other and have a similar genome organization. Six genotypes (HuV-A1 to A6) have now been described.

Further hunniviruses have been found in rats in Vietnam (Van Dung et al., unpub.) and their classification is in progress.
