  1. Notes: For lineages obtained in our study and for the similar study by [12] we displayed the wild columbid host species as well as numbers and percentages of infected individuals. Furthermore, we give the numbers and percentages of lineages found in a species. Note, the percentages in a species (% species) were calculated according to the number of species infected by a certain lineage and divided through the absolute number of infected individuals of a species

  3. aThe lineage is synonymous with genotype B described by Sansano-Maestre et al. [14] and is therefore potentially pathogenic
  4. bThe lineage is synonymous with genotype A described by Sansano-Maestre et al. [14] and is therefore apparently non-pathogenic and widespread
