Polycipiviridae is a recently recognized viral family within the order Picornavirales with unusual genome organization and phylogenetic placement. Viruses belonging to this family were only reported from arthropod hosts. We describe here the first full genome of a distant polycipivirus-related virus identified in frugivorous bat stools in Cambodia.
