A genus of viruses (family Flaviviridae) composed of the hog cholera virus and related viruses.

Pestivirus

a genus in the family Flaviviridae. Four different species or genotypes have been identified in the genus: bovine virus diarrhea virus (BVDV) types I and II, classical swine fever virus (CSFV), and border disease virus (BDV). Isolates from border disease predominantly fall within the BDV genotype, but sheep and goat isolates also fall in the BVDV genotypes.
