Maximum Likelihood phylogenetic tree based on partial 27 partial 16S sequences, with 8 sequences originating from Kazakh ticks and 19 from GenBank. Six sequences formed a new cluster “Candidatus Rickettsia yenbekshikazakhensis” (5 sequences from Yenbekshikazakh district, 1 from Yeskeldy district-Tekeli city) and two sequences from DNA of ticks from Tekeli the new cluster “genotype Rickettsia talgarensis”. There were a total of 717 positions in the final dataset. The tree with the highest log-likelihood (-1287.3794) is shown
