Phylogenetic tree showing relationships based on 412-nt and 439-nt sequences of a conserved region of gene 1b of BatCoV/Molossus rufus28/Brazil/2010 (alphacoronavirus) and BatCoV/Pteronotus davyi49/Mexico/2012 (betacoronavirus) to other known coronaviruses. Sequences were aligned by using ClustalW (www.clustal.org/), phylogenetic analyses were conducted by using the neighbor-joining method and BioEdit (www.mbio.ncsu.edu/BioEdit/BioEdit.html), and trees were constructed by using FigTree version 1

Figure. . . Phylogenetic tree showing relationships based on 412-nt and 439-nt sequences of a conserved region of gene 1b of BatCoV/Molossus rufus28/Brazil/2010 (alphacoronavirus) and BatCoV/Pteronotus davyi49/Mexico/2012 (betacoronavirus) to other known coronaviruses. Sequences were aligned by using ClustalW (www.clustal.org/), phylogenetic analyses were conducted by using the neighbor-joining method and BioEdit (www.mbio.ncsu.edu/BioEdit/BioEdit.html), and trees were constructed by using FigTree version 1.4.0 (http://tree.bio.ed.ac.uk/software/figtree/). Boxes surround the novel alphacoronavirus detected in Molossus rufus and M. molossus bat specimens from São Paulo state in southeastern Brazil, and the novel betacoronavirus detected in a specimen from a Pteronotus davyi bat from Jalisco state in midwestern Mexico.
