Abstract
Two different reoviruses were isolated during investigation on pathogens of diseased crab E—
riocheir sinensis(designated as Es RV816 and Es RV905). RV816 was isolated from crabs collected
from Jiangsu province.Es RV905 was purchased from a local farm in W uhan, Hubei province.The
spherical viral particles of Es RV8 1 6 and Es RV905 are about 65 and 55 nm in diameter.The tWO viral
particles contain two different genom es of 10 and 12 RNA segm ents, respectively. Based on their
hosts,number of segments and electrophoresis type of the genomes,they may represent tWO new gen—
era of the reoviridae.
