Phylogenetic analysis of 3 segments of Toscana virus (TOSV) isolates from pools of sandflies collected in Tunisia and homologous sequences of other selected phleboviruses. A) Large segments; B) medium segments; C) small segments. Sequences are identified by virus name or acronym, strain name, and GenBank accession number. Scale bars indicate nucleotide substitutions per site. TEHV, Tehran virus; SFNV, sandfly fever Naples virus; PNQV, Punique virus; RVFV, Rift Valley fever virus; ARBV, Arbia vir
