Fig. 4

Bayesian phylogeny of 16 Haemoproteus (Parahaemoproteus) spp., 5 H. (Haemoproteus) spp. and 3 Plasmodium spp. based on cytochrome b gene sequences of 479 bp lengths. One Leucocytozoon sp. sequence was used as outgroup. Nodal support values indicate Bayesian posterior probabilities. The scale bar shows the expected substitutions per site. Parasite lineage codes are given according to MalAvi database [17]; they are followed by GenBank accession numbers of sequences and parasite species names. Vertical bars (ac) indicate groups of closely related species belonging to the subgenus Parahaemoproteus (a) and Haemoproteus (b); lineages of owl parasites are marked by bar C. Parasite lineages used in this study are given in bold font
