*MOBV, Mobala virus (GenBank accession no. NC_007903); MORV, Morogoro virus (NC_013057); MOPV, Mopeia virus (NC_006575); LASV, Lassa virus (NC_004296); LUJV, Lujo virus (FJ952384). The number of nucleotide substitutions per site is shown. The small segment nucleotide sequences from 7 arenavirus strains were analyzed. All positions containing gaps and missing data were eliminated. The final dataset comprised 3,130 positions.
