Introduction Viroids are the only class of autonomously replicating subviral pathogens whose molecular structure is well defined. Their structural and functional properties, as well as their evolutionary origin differ fundamentally from those of viruses (see below), posing specific problems for the classification of these subviral pathogens. For example, some of the criteria suggested by the Executive Committee of the International Committee on Taxono- my of Viruses (ICTV) for the definition of species, which include those regarding morpho- logical characteristics, protein characteristics and antigenic properties, are not applicable to viroids. The purpose of this note is to present a consensus taxonomic proposal (see Fig. 1) that has emerged from consultations among the members of the Viroid Study Group of the Plant Virus Subcommittee of the ICTV.
