Virology Division News 427 Arch Virol 145/2 (2000) Virology Division News VDN Constructing and writing the names of virus species – an editorial note M. A. Mayo Scottish Crop Research Institute, Dundee, U.K. How the names of virus species are constructed and written has recently been the subject of articles in this section of Archives of Virology. These have been either critical , or supportive [5, 6], of the procedures currently used by the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses (ICTV) . Dr. Bos has followed up his critical comments  with a further response . It, and further comments by Dr. Van Regenmortel , are presented following this introductory note. How ICTV operates, and the procedures it uses, are controlled by Statutes  that are agreed by its parent body, IUMS Virology Division, and by an International Code of Virus Classification and Nomenclature . Nevertheless, the subject of how virus taxon names are written is a live issue that comes up in most meetings of the ICTV Executive Committee. And it is an important one, certainly as judged by the number of virologists who have been moved to make their opinions known to the ICTV in recent months.
