Abstract

Members of the viral family Circoviridae are increasingly recognized worldwide. Bats seem to be natural reservoirs or dietary-related dispensers of these viruses. Here, we report a distantly related member of the genus Cyclovirus detected in the faeces of a great roundleaf bat (Hipposideros armiger). Interestingly, the novel virus lacks a Circoviridae-specific stem-loop structure, although a Geminiviridae-like nonamer sequence was detected in the large intergenic region. Based on these differences and its phylogenetic position, we propose that our new virus represents a distant and highly divergent member of the genus Cyclovirus. However it is lacking several characteristics of members of the genus, which raises a challenge in its taxonomic classification.
