The genus Cardiovirus consists six species, Cardiovirus A (formerly named Encephalomyocarditis virus), Cardiovirus B (formerly named Theilovirus) and Cardiovirus C, Cardiovirus D (Saffold virus), Cardiovirus E (red-backed vole cardiovirus) and Cardiovirus F (grey-backed vole cardiovirus)

Cardiovirus A is comprised of two serotypes of encephalomyocarditis virus (EMCV). Cardiovirus B is comprised of Theiler's murine encephalomyelitis virus (TMEV), Vilyuisk human encephalomyelitis virus (VHEV), Thera virus (TRV;  isolated from rats). Cardiovirus C is comprised of Boone cardiovirus 1 and 2. Note: due to the lack of complete polyprotein-coding sequences for genet fecal theilovirus and marmot cardiovirus, proposals as new species were rejected by the ICTV.

The cardioviruses are most closely related to members of the genera , Aphthovirus, Cosavirus, Erbovirus and Senecavirus.
