Maximum likelihood phylogenetic analysis of the B. globosus and B. truncatus haplotypes collected in Madziwa, Zimbabwe, in relation to other Bulinus species. Each terminal bar is marked using the species name and the code given to the haplotype, e.g. H1 or T1. Bulinus globosus and B. truncatus haplotypes are represented by the letter H and T, respectively. The bootstrap values below 80% are not shown. There were a total of 607 positions in the final dataset. The accession numbers of the individual sequences forming the haplotypes are shown in Additional file 1: Table S3. The distribution of sequences among B. globosus haplotypes was as follows: haplotype 1 (n = 114 samples); haplotype 2 (n = 14); haplotype 3 (n = 11); haplotype 4 (n = 9); haplotype 5 (n = 8); haplotype 6 (n = 3); haplotype 8 (n = 2); haplotypes 7, 9, 10, 11 and 12 (n = 1 sample each). For B. truncatus, there were only three haplotypes. Among these three, the most common haplotype (T1) represented 10 samples, T2 representing 5 samples and T3 representing 1 sample
