The newly created family Dicistroviridae contains two genera, Cripavirus (type species: Cricket paralysis virus) and Aparavirus (type species: Acute bee paralysis virus).

The 3-dimesional structure of cricket paralysis virus has been published (Tate et al., 1999) and the coordinates are available on the Brookhaven database (PDB ID code 1B35).
