The proteins that make up capsids.

Capsomeres make up capsids and capsids surround the nucleic acid genomes within the virions of viruses.

Capsids primary consist of proteins and therefore primarily of capsomeres.

Arguably distinct from capsids are the adsorption proteins of viruses. So too are lipids making up the envelopes of enveloped viruses distinct from the capsids that also are found as a component of enveloped viruses.
