A) Phylogenetic tree based on the 16S rRNA sequences of 12 Borrelia hispanica DNA samples from patients in Morocco. Sequences from this study submitted to GenBank are accession nos. GQ202254–GQ202265. B) Phylogenetic tree based on noncoding 16S–23S intergenic spacer sequences of 23 B. hispanica DNA samples from patients in Morocco. Sequences from this study submitted to GenBank are accession nos. FJ827568–FJ827590. The letters S or H indicate the location at which the sample was obtained: S, Sidi Mohamed Lahmar; H, Had Ouled Jelloum. Scale bars indicate genetic distances between DNA sequences.
