  The species Parechovirus C contains Sebokele virus 1 (SEBV-1), a virus isolated from rodents (Joffret et al., 2013). SEBV-1 was originally isolated in 1972 from the crushed organs of Hylomyscus sp. (African wood mice) collected in Botambi, Central African Republic (Digoutte, 1978; Digoutte & Germain, 1985; El Mekki et al., 1981; Zeller et al., 1989).
