Fi·lo·vi·ri·dae

(fī'lō-vī'ri-dē),
A family of filamentous, single-stranded, negative sense RNA viruses with an enveloped nucleocapsid. These viruses were formerly classified with the Rhabdoviridae and are associated with hemorrhagic fever. The natural reservoir of these viruses is unknown. See: Ebola virus.
