snakehead rhabdovirus (SHRV) A tentative species in the genus Novirhabdovirus, isolated from internal organs of striped snakeheads, Ophicephalus striatus, with severe ulcerative disease and mortality. Other South-East Asian fish species, the swamp eel, Fluta alba, and the Australian barramundi, Lates calcarifer, also seem to suffer from this infection. The virus is antigenically distinct from other fish rhabdoviruses.
