Cetacean morbillivirus (CeMV) A species in the genus Morbillivirus. In 1990 many striped dolphins in the Mediterranean sea were found to be dying from an infection termed dolphin morbillivirus. Two years previously a closely related virus had been isolated from porpoises (Phocoena phocoena). Serological evidence of infection with this virus was subsequently found in many other species in the Atlantic ocean, and the name cetacean morbillivirus was adopted.
