Figure. Phylogenetic analysis of AHFV-JE7 (shown in boldface) detected in an Ornithodoros savignyi tick and homologous sequences of related mammalian tickborne flaviviruses based on colinearized nucleotide sequences. Distances and groupings were determined by the p-distance algorithm and neighbor-joining method. Bootstrap values are indicated and correspond to 500 replications. Rio Bravo and Apoi viruses were used to root the tree. The scale bar at the lower left indicates a genetic distance of 0.05-nt substitutions per position.
