Figure. . Phylogenetic position of Burkholderia pseudomallei isolate BpSp2, sequence type (ST) 879 (boldface), from a patient in Spain who had traveled to Africa. The dendrogram was built by using 852 isolates from the public B. pseudomallei database (http://bpseudomallei.mlst.net). The clade in which most STs from Africa, South America, and the Caribbean are located has been enlarged; location, source type, and year collected are indicated for each isolate. Black circle indicates isolates from Africa; black squares indicate isolates from South America or the Caribbean; black triangles indicate ST349 from Martinique and the first patient described in Spain (7). Location of other STs from Africa, B. mallei, and B. thailandensis are also indicated. Environ, environment.
