Phylogram based on the alignment of the concatenated DNA sequences containing the 16S rDNA, flaB, gyrB, and glpQ loci for 6 isolates (DAH, GAR, ALL, LAK-1, MTW-2, and YOR) and infected tissues from the owl (OWL) and pine squirrel (YB-Th-60) of Borrelia hermsii. The same loci from B. turicatae 91E135 were used for the outgroup. New DNA sequences determined for the owl and pine squirrel spirochetes are available in GenBank (accession nos. GQ175059–GQ175068). Scale bar indicates number of base subs
