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.
