Ratification vote on taxonomic proposals to the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses (2016)

Abstract

This article lists the changes to virus taxonomy approved and ratified by the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses (ICTV) in April 2016.

Changes to virus taxonomy (the Universal Scheme of Virus Classification of the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses [ICTV]) now take place annually and are the result of a multi-stage process. In accordance with the ICTV Statutes (http://www.ictvonline.org/statutes.asp), proposals submitted to the ICTV Executive Committee (EC) undergo a review process that involves input from the ICTV Study Groups (SGs) and Subcommittees (SCs), other interested virologists, and the EC. After final approval by the EC, proposals are then presented for ratification to the full ICTV membership by publication on an ICTV web site (http://www.ictvonline.org/) followed by an electronic vote. The latest set of proposals approved by the EC was made available on the ICTV website by January 2016 (https://talk.ictvonline.org/files/proposals/). A list of these proposals was then emailed on 28 March 2016 to the 148 members of ICTV, namely the EC Members, Life Members, ICTV Subcommittee Members (including the SG chairs) and ICTV National Representatives. Members were then requested to vote on whether to ratify the taxonomic proposals (voting closed on 29 April 2016).

This report summarises the taxonomic proposals that were ratified by ICTV members. Note that in accordance with ICTV convention, all approved taxon names are italicized. The proposals are listed by ICTV Subcommittee, and then the filename as posted on-line. Each proposal is formally cited so that a list of the authors appears in the References. This provides a means of acknowledging the authors’ efforts and also links to the specific proposal on the ICTV website. These documents remain available for any who wish to see details of the viruses assigned to the new taxa or any other details of the proposals.

Conclusion

All of the taxonomic proposals listed above were unanimously approved by the 80 members who voted (a return rate of 54%). The general proposal 2015.001aG [76] to modify the taxonomic code to disallow diacritics and other non-standard characters in taxon names was rejected by some but nevertheless received majority approval (54 in favour, 19 against and 7 abstentions). The changes listed above are now part of the official ICTV taxonomy and represent changes to the taxonomy published in the Ninth Report [136] and are in addition to changes approved in February 2012 [137], February 2013 [138], March 2014 [139], and February 2015 [140]. An up-to-date list of all approved taxa can be found on the ICTV online web site: http://www.ictvonline.org/msl.htm.
