Neighbor-Joining tree showing the relationships of the sequences of L. tropica and L. infantum using MEGA 6 software, related to sequences in GenBank. The evolutionary history was inferred using the Neighbor-Joining method. The optimal tree with the sum of branch length = 0.17897865 is shown. The percentage of replicate trees in which the associated taxa clustered together in the bootstrap test (1000 replicates) is shown next to the branches. The evolutionary distances were computed using the Maximum Composite Likelihood method and are in the units of the number of base substitutions per site. The analysis involved 24 nucleotide sequences. All positions containing gaps and missing data were eliminated. There were a total of 362 positions in the final dataset. Evolutionary analyses were conducted in MEGA6.
