  1. Table legend:
  2. *Spacer genotypes are defined according to Fournier et al. database. If the spacer sequence showed a similarity less than 100% to those present in this database, the Genbank accession number of the sequence with 100% similarity or that of the new submitted sequence (1,2) is noted.
  3. -: Amplification or sequencing failed.
  4. Accession Numbers of submitted sequences : aKF500412, bKF500416, cKF500411, dKF500413, eKF500415, fKF539824, g:KF539828, hKF539823, iKF539827, jKF539831, kKF539825, l:KF539829, mKF539832, nKF539826.
