Updated results on mesospheric nightside thermal structure and cloud features of Venus are presented that were retrieved from VIRTIS-M-IR measurements during eight Venus solar days between April 2006 and October 2008 using new methodical approaches. Maps for the southern hemisphere cover parameter variations with altitude, latitude, local time, and mission time. The mesospheric temperature field strongly depends on latitude and local time. Zonal averages of retrieved temperature profiles and cloud parameters in both hemispheres show global N-S axial symmetry. Cloud top altitude at 1 μm decreases from 71 km at the equator to 61 km over both poles. Average cloud particle size is minimal at mid latitudes
