ABSTRACT The rhabdoviral genus Tibrovirus currently has three official members assigned to two species: Bivens Arm virus and Tibrogargan virus (species Tibrogargan tibrovirus) and Coastal Plains virus (species Coastal Plains tibrovirus). Here, we report the complete genome sequence of a new putative member of this genus, Beatrice Hill virus. Although relatively closely related to the three classified viruses, Beatrice Hill virus represents a novel Tibrovirus species. 
Human Tibroviruses: Commensals or Lethal Pathogens?
TLDR
It is argued that assessing their impact on human health should be an urgent priority and that certain tibroviruses may be benign and well-adapted to humans, others could be newly emerging and produce serious disease.
Human, Nonhuman Primate, and Bat Cells Are Broadly Susceptible to Tibrovirus Particle Cell Entry
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the glycoproteins of all tibroviruses can mediate vesiculovirus particle entry into human, bat, nonhuman primate, cotton rat, boa constrictor, and Asian tiger mosquito cells.
Virus Taxonomy The ICTV Report on Virus Classification and Taxon Nomenclature Rhabdoviridae Chapter Rhabdoviridae
The family Rhabdoviridae includes 20 genera and 144 species of viruses with negative-sense, single-stranded RNA genomes of approximately 10–16 kb (Table 1.Rhabdoviridae). Virions are typically
Taxonomy of the order Mononegavirales: update 2018
TLDR
The updated taxonomy of the order Mononegavirales is presented as now accepted by the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses (ICTV) and additional taxonomic proposals that may affect the order in the near future are summarized.
Human, Nonhuman Primate, and Bat Cells Are Broadly Susceptible to Tibrovirus Particle Cell Entry
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the glycoproteins of all tibroviruses can mediate vesiculovirus particle entry into human, bat, nonhuman primate, cotton rat, boa constrictor, and Asian tiger mosquito cells.

TLDR
A genomic comparison reveals Bivens Arm virus to be closely related to, but distinct from, Tibrogargan virus.
Isolation of Tibrogargan virus, a new Australian rhabdovirus, from Culicoides brevitarsis.
CSIRO 132 virus, which is new to science in Australia, and probably the world, has been isolated from Culicoides brevitarsis. Electron micrographs show that it resembles a rhabdovirus. Antibodies to
Tibrogargan and Coastal Plains rhabdoviruses: genomic characterization, evolution of novel genes and seroprevalence in Australian livestock.
TLDR
Although no disease has been observed in association with these viruses, antibodies were detected at high prevalence in cattle and buffalo in northern Australia, indicating the need for disease monitoring and further study of this distinctive group of viruses.
Newly characterized arboviruses of northern Australia
TLDR
Five different arboviruses, isolated and stored for over 30 years, were re-cultured and sequenced using high-throughput sequencing technology (Ion Torrent PGM) for identification and genetic characterization.
Isolation of a Novel Fusogenic Orthoreovirus from Eucampsipoda africana Bat Flies in South Africa
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis places this virus into a distinct clade with Baboon orthoreovirus, Bush viper reovirus and the bat-associated Broome virus, and phylogenetic and sequence data suggests that MAHLV constitutes a new species within the Orthoreov virus genus.
Isolation of a new rhabdovirus in Australia related to Tibrogargan virus.
TLDR
The geographical distribution of neutralizing antibody to DPP53 virus in Australian cattle corresponded to the distribution of Culicoides brevitarsis indicating that this virus may be arthropod-borne with this midge as a possible vector.
Bivens arm virus: a new rhabdovirus isolated from Culicoides insignis in Florida and related to Tibrogargan virus of Australia.
TLDR
Serologic comparisons of cattle serum, collected before the importation of the buffalo revealed antibody to the virus in cattle on farms located in diverse areas of Florida, and indicated antigenic reactivity between Bivens Arm virus and two rhabdoviruses found only in Australia, Tibrogargan and Coastal Plains viruses.
A Novel Rhabdovirus Associated with Acute Hemorrhagic Fever in Central Africa
TLDR
Deep sequencing was used to discover a novel rhabdovirus (Bas-Congo virus, or BASV) associated with a 2009 outbreak of 3 human cases of acute hemorrhagic fever in Mangala village, Democratic Republic of Congo, Africa, and revealed that BASV is highly divergent and shares less than 34% amino acid identity with any other rhabDovirus.
Isolation of arboviruses from insects collected at Beatrice Hill, Northern Territory of Australia, 1974-1976.
TLDR
The study yielded five new viruses (bluetongue serotype 20, CSIRO Village, Marrakai, Beatrice Hill and Humpty Doo viruses) and a new record for Thimiri virus which had not been recorded previously in Australia nor had it been isolated from an arthropod.
Evolution of Genome Size and Complexity in the Rhabdoviridae
TLDR
It is concluded that rhabdoviruses have an unusual capacity for genomic plasticity that may be linked to their discontinuous transcription strategy from the negative-sense single-stranded RNA genome, and a model is proposed that accounts for the regular occurrence of genome expansion and contraction throughout the evolution of the RhabDoviridae.
