Birnaviridae

a family of nonenveloped, icosahedral viruses, containing a genome of two segments of double-stranded RNA. There are three genera, Aquabirnavirus, which causes infectious pancreatic necrosis in trout, Avibirnavirus, which causes infectious bursal disease in chickens, and Entomobirnavirus, which infects flies.
