Globuloviridae is a family of hyperthermophilic archaeal viruses. Crenarchaea of the genera Pyrobaculum and Thermoproteus serve as natural hosts. There are currently only two species in this family, Pyrobaculum spherical virus and Thermoproteus tenax spherical virus 1, included into a single genus, Globulovirus.

Viral replication is cytoplasmic. DNA-templated transcription is the method of transcription. Pyrobaculum and Thermoproteus archaea serve as the natural host. Transmission routes are passive diffusion.
