Here, we report the draft genome sequence of a divergent strain of Culex pipiens-associated Tunisia virus (CpATV) identified in the malaria vector Anopheles epiroticus (CpATV-AnE). CpATV-AnE expands the reference virus sequence, introducing an extended replicase with novel virga-like domains. Our results suggest that the host range of CpATV includes Anopheles sp. mosquitoes.
