Phylogenetic position of Trypanosoma nudigobii inferred from partial 18S rRNA gene sequences. Tree topology was identical across Neighbour Joining (NJ), Maximum Likelihood (ML), and Maximum Parsimony (MP) analyses (all with 1000 bootstrap replicates). Therefore, the nodal bootstrap support values for each analyses (NJ/ML/MP) are represented on the ML tree constructed using the K2P model with a four category gamma (G) distribution, showing values of >50%. Trypanosoma nudigobii falls within a discrete marine fish trypanosome clade, clustering predominantly with Trypanosoma murmanense and Trypanosoma pleuronectidium.
