*HPeV, human parechovirus; PeV, parechovirus; VP1, viral protein 1. Percentage of amino acid identity per site from analysis between sequences is shown. All results (%) are based on the pairwise analysis of 13 sequences (pairwise deletion option). Analyses were conducted in MEGA software (www.megasoftware.net). There were 297 positions in the final dataset.
