Neighbor-joining phylogenetic tree comparing 893 bp of the cytochrome b region of Herpestidae family sequences available in GenBank. Sequence obtained from the Lagos bat virus–infected mongoose (Mongoose2004) is 98% identical to the known cytochrome b sequences of Atilax paludinosus (water mongoose). GenBank accession numbers are indicated on the phylogenetic tree, and bootstrap values were determined with 1,000 replicates.
