RHD virus (RHDV), which causes rabbit hemorrhagic disease, is the object of phylogenetic studies. The results of these studies provide valuable information on this pathogen. The purpose of present review is to summarize cur-rent knowledge about the phylogenetic position of this virus. The paper discusses the results of previous phyloge-netic studies of RHDV, including factors affecting the shape of the phylogeny of this species and the diversity of RHDV strains in different parts of the world. It also presents the results of phylogenetic analysis of RHDV en-riched with non-pathogenic and low pathogenic strains of rabbit lagoviruses, as well as phylogenetic analyses performed using modern Bayesian methods. The paper also highlights the unclear situation of Lagovirus taxono-my and shows selected data on the evolution of RHDV, gathered using phylogenetic methods. Finally, the possibility of using rabbit lagoviruses as a model for the study of the evolution of mammalian ssRNA(+) viruses has been shown.
