Table 3 Absolute divergence matrix (%) between ITS2 sequences (428 to 437-bp) of Ornithodoros rietcorreai n. sp. from four cross-mating groups: ♂PI × ♀PI ticks (haplotypes A-C); ♂PB × ♀PB ticks (haplotypes D-J); ♂PB × ♀PI ticks (haplotypes E, H, K-M); and ♂PI × ♀PB ticks (haplotypes E, H, N-Q)

From: A new argasid tick species (Acari: Argasidae) associated with the rock cavy, Kerodon rupestris Wied-Neuwied (Rodentia: Caviidae), in a semiarid region of Brazil
