A spherovirus infecting Haliotis divericolor aquatilis is proved as a pathogen of a case with a fatality of 100% by using microbiological methods and case replication in Dongshan county in Fujian province. This disease was infected easily through breed water, human and tools in all the young and adult abalones and came on acutely with a short course and high fatality. The symptons are as follows: the feet muscles contracted and nestled closely to the bottom of the fishpond.
