  1. Babesia/Theileria species was determined, for selected positive samples, by sequencing of PCR products. For each of the five animal species in which piroplasmid DNA was detected we reported the parasite species, the GenBank accession number attributed to each isolate and the area of origin. *A unique accession number was attributed to two chamois.
