Electron microscopic studies on lumpy skin disease virus, type "Neethling",
have been conducted. Virions which are remarkably similar in size and structural
appearance to those of vaccinia virus are described. This is presented as further
evidence for classifying lumpy skin disease virus as a member of the pox group.
