Gammalipothrixvirus is a genus of viruses in the order Ligamenvirales, in the family Lipothrixviridae. Archaea acidianus serve as natural hosts. There is currently only one species in this genus: the type species Acidianus filamentous virus 1.
Viruses in Gammalipothrixvirus are enveloped, with rod-shaped geometries. The diameter is around 24 nm, with a length of 900 nm. Genomes are linear, around 20kb in length. The genome codes for 40 proteins.

Viral replication is cytoplasmic. Entry into the host cell is achieved by adsorption into the host cell. DNA-templated transcription is the method of transcription. Archaea acidianus serve as the natural host. Transmission routes are passive diffusion.
