Virus identification resources

  • The International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses (ICTV) maintains a complete database of all accepted viral species. This list ought to be the sole reference for curation of viruses on iNaturalist, but it can also be used to cursorily check whether there are, or have ever been, any virus species names that include the name of a host of interest. Note that some viruses may infect more species than than just the host mentioned in their name. To search this database, go to, tick the box Select to search across all ICTV releases, and query the host genus and host common name(s).

I'm glad to help. It needs some expansion though.
