Ampullavirus is a genus of viruses, in the family Ampullaviridae. Genus acidianus serve as natural hosts. There are currently only one species in this genus: the type species Acidianus bottle-shaped virus.
Viruses in Ampullavirus are enveloped. Genomes are linear, around 239kb in length. The genome has 56 open reading frames.

Viral replication is cytoplasmic. Entry into the host cell is achieved by virus attaches to host cell. Dna templated transcription is the method of transcription. Genus acidianus serve as the natural host. Transmission routes are passive diffusion.
