Orchid fleck virus (OFV) is an unassigned negative-sense, single-stranded (−)ssRNA plant virus that was previously suggested to be included in the family Rhabdoviridae, order Mononegavirales . Although OFV shares some biological characteristics, including nuclear cytopathological effects, gene order, and sequence similarities, with nucleorhabdoviruses, its taxonomic status is unclear because unlike all mononegaviruses, OFV has a segmented genome and its particles are not enveloped. This article analyses the available biological, physico-chemical, and nucleotide sequence evidence that seems to indicate that OFV and several other Brevipalpus mite-transmitted short bacilliform (−)ssRNA viruses are likely related and may be classified taxonomically in novel species in a new free-floating genus Dichorhavirus .
