Genome sequences are available for a sizeable number of herpesviruses that need to be classified. The Herpesvirales Study Group plans to approach this in a staged fashion. This year, we focus on the family Herpesviridae and propose the classification of 18 new species in existing genera and the placement of one existing species, which was not assigned to a genus, into an existing genus.
