Genetic relationship of 18S rRNA gene sequences of Babesia/Theileria spp. identified in the present study (starred) with those of Babesia/Theileria spp. available on GenBank. The sequence data (582 bp) were analysed using Neighbour Joining (NJ), Maximum Likelihood (ML) and Bayesian Inference (BI) methods. There was a concordance among the topology of the BI, ML and NJ trees (not shown) and only NJ tree is presented here. Nodal support is given as a posterior probability of BI and bootstrap values for NJ and ML. The tree was rooted using Plasmodium falciparum as outgroup. The scale-bar indicates the number of inferred substitutions per site
