Phylogenetic relationships among Bear Canyon virus (BCNV) prototype strain A0070039, 4 other BCNV isolates from California mice (Peromyscus californicus), Whitewater Arroyo virus (WWAV), Tamiami virus (TAMV), and 15 other arenaviruses, based on a maximum likelihood analysis of a fragment of the nucleocapsid protein gene. The string of characters following “BCNV” or “WWAV” denotes the virus strain. LCMV, lymphocytic choriomeningitis; Pcal, Peromyscus californicus; Nalb, Neotoma albigula; Ncin, N. cinerea; Nmex, N. mexicana; Nmic, N. micropus; Shis, Sigmodon hispidus; NM, New Mexico; UT, Utah; OK, Oklahoma; TX, Texas; FL, Florida.
