Phylogenetic comparison of novel Sarcocystis sp. with related Sarcocystis spp. Tree constructed by neighbor-joining using Kimura 2-parameter method based on the partial 18S rRNA gene comprising 1,391 bp and the D2 region of 28S rRNA gene comprising 325 bp of the novel Sarcocytis sp. (GenBank accession no. GQ245670/FJ232949) and the following available Sarcocystis sequences: Frenkelia microti (S. buteonis) (AF009244/AF044252); Frenkelia glareoli (S. glareoli) (AF009245/AF044251); S. sp. (cyst typ
