The species Enterovirus H
(formerly name Simian enterovirus A)
consists of three simian viruses isolated during the 1950's (SV4, SV28 and
SA4) and A-2 plaque virus. The close molecular relationships of all four
viruses suggests that they all belong to a single serotype, enterovirus H1
(EV-H1; formerly named simian enterovirus A1).
