The Leviviridae are a family of bacteriophages. These are small RNA viruses with linear, positive-sense, single-stranded RNA genomes that encode only four proteins. All phages of this family require bacterial pili to attach to and infect cells.
The family has two genera, both of which currently have two known species.

The four proteins encoded are the coat, replicase, maturation and lysis proteins.
