Maximum Likelihood phylogenetic tree based on 226 partial ompB DNA sequences, with 203 sequences originating from amplificates from Kazakh tick DNA and 23 from the GenBank database. 124 sequences from Kazakh ticks were 100% identical to R. raoultii, two were 100% identical to R. slovaca, and 77 sequences formed a new cluster “Candidatus Rickettsia yenbekshikazakhensis” (76 sequences from Yenbekshikazakh district, 1 from Yeskeldy district-Tekeli city). The tree with the highest log-likelihood (-3541.6714) is shown. There were a total of 806 positions in the final dataset
