Thogotovirus is a genus in the virus family Orthomyxoviridae. The only species in this genus is called "Thogoto virus". It can replicate in both tick cells and vertebrate cells and is usually transmitted by ticks.

Thogoto virus can be transmitted from infected to uninfected ticks when co-feeding on uninfected guinea-pigs, even though the guinea-pigs do not develop detectable viraemia.
