Rhinolophus bat coronavirus HKU2
Virus classification e
(unranked): Virus
Realm: Riboviria
Phylum: incertae sedis
Order: Nidovirales
Family: Coronaviridae
Genus: Alphacoronavirus
Subgenus: Rhinacovirus
Species: Rhinolophus bat coronavirus HKU2

Rhinolophus bat coronavirus HKU2 (Chinese horsehoe bat virus; Bat-CoV HKU2) is a novel enveloped, single-stranded positive-sense RNA virus species in the Alphacoronavirus, or Group 1, genus with a corona-like morphology.


RH-BAT-Cov-HKU2 shares a common evolutionary origin in the spike protein of Bat-SARS CoV. This spike protein shares similar deletions with group 2 coronaviruses in the C-terminus.[1][2]
