Phylogenetic tree based on partial LSU sequences for avian schistosomes in order to identify ocellate furcocercariae from Hampshire, UK. The samples sequenced from Hampshire, UK have close affinity with T. franki and do not associate with another species. The tree was constructed using the ML method in MEGA5 using the HKY + G substitution model. The scale shows the number of nucleotide substitutions per site between DNA sequences and nodal supports were generated using 1000 bootstrap replicates. The nodal support is given in NJ, ML and MP bootstraps respectively and only values >50 for at least two of the analyses are shown.
