Virus classification
Group: Group IV ((+)ssRNA)
Genus: Higrevirus
Type Species

Higrevirus is a genus of viruses. Plants serve as natural hosts. There is currently only one species in this genus: the type species Hibiscus green spot virus 2.[1][2]


Group: ssRNA(+)



Viruses in Higrevirus are non-enveloped, with bacilliform geometries. These viruses are about 30 nm wide and 50 nm long. Genomes are linear and segmented, tripartite, around in length.[1]

Life Cycle

Viral replication is cytoplasmic. Entry into the host cell is achieved by penetration into the host cell. Replication follows the positive stranded RNA virus replication model. Positive stranded RNA virus transcription is the method of transcription. Plants serve as the natural host.[1]
