Figure 4

Maximum likelihood tree obtained of the TVM + I + G model has shown the results of using 525 bp from Lutzomyia longipalpis period marker. The localities of Bodocó (BOD), State of Pernambuco and Caririaçu (CAR) and Sobral (SOB), State of Ceará, Brazil. The topology shown (55% bootstrap support) consistently separates the two morphological variants known for L. longipalpis, the morphotypes 1S and 2S, as well as puts in evidence the derived monophyletic position of the 2S group.
