The divergence of Thogoto-like viruses from other Orthomyxoviridae can be explained by analyzing the method by which these viruses invade their hosts.
Infection of influenza A, B and C viruses is initiated by binding of the viral HA to sialooligosachharides on the surface of the vertebrate cell membrane.

The name influenza has its origin in early fifteenth century Italy and was adopted in Europe to explain the sudden appearance of an epidemic disease thought to be under the influence of the stars.
The viruses are classified as members of the family Orthomyxoviridae (from the Greek orthos, 'standard, correct', and myxo, 'mucus') because of their ability to bind to mucus, and to distinguish them from a second family of enveloped negative-strand RNA viruses, the Paramyxoviridae (reviewed in [ 22 ]).
The Orthomyxoviridae are divided into two genera: influenza A and B viruses, and influenza C virus.

In the 1940's (still pre-tissue culture, primitive immunology, few other viruses known), the characteristic property of haemagglutination was observed, followed by the discovery that the virus could be propagated in embryonated hens eggs (after adaptation) - this made influenza one of the best studied viruses during this period.
More viruses with similar properties were added to the group, until it was split into two families in the 1970s, the Paramyxoviridae and the Orthomyxoviridae :
It is believed that all (-)sense RNA viruses may have evolved from a common ancestor - all replicate their genomes by a common mechanism.

Influenza viruses are enveloped viruses with surface glycoprotein spikes.
Zanamivir and osteltamivir are neuraminidase inhibitors that are active against both influenza type A and type B viruses.  Zanamivir is approved for treatment of influenza in patients over 7 years old.  Oseltamivir is approved for both treatment (18 years and older) and prophylaxis (13 years and older) of influenza.
