  Aichivirus B (formerly named Bovine kobuvirus) is one of three species in the genus Kobuvirus. This species consists of a two types bovine kobuvirus 1 (BKV-1) (Yamashita et al., 2003) and sheep kobuvirus 1 (SKV) (Reuter et al., 2010). Bovine kobuvirus-like sequences have also been detected in pigs (Khamrin et al., 2010). A third genotype, ferret kobuvirus, has recently been described (Smits et al., 2013).
