Virus classification Edit this classification
(unranked): Virus
Realm: Riboviria
Kingdom: Orthornavirae
Phylum: Duplornaviricota
Class: Chrymotiviricetes
Order: Ghabrivirales

Ghabrivirales is an order of double-stranded RNA viruses.[1] It is the only order in the class Chrysmotiviricetes. The name of the class is a portmanteau of member families: chrysoviridae, megabirnaviridae, and totiviridae; and -viricetes which is the suffix for a virus class. The name of the order derives from Said Ghabrial, a pioneering researcher who studied viruses in this order, and -virales which is the suffix for a virus order.[2]
