Genetic characterization of Aino and Peaton virus field isolates reveals a genetic reassortment between these viruses in nature.
To enable comparative sequence analysis and phylogenetic investigations, we determined almost full-length S-, M-, and L-segment sequences for 9 Simbu serogroup viruses belonging to 5 species (Table 1): SHAV, Peaton virus, and Sango virus, species Shamonda virus; DOUV and SATV, species Sathuperi virus; Aino virus and Shuni virus, species Shuni virus; Sabo virus, species Akabane virus; and Simbu virus, species Simbu virus.
8), we suggest that SHAV should be reclassified into the species Sathuperi virus and that the species Shamonda virus should be renamed Peaton virus or Sango virus.
