Figure. Phylogenetic analysis of Toscana virus (TOSV) from Sergentomyia minuta based on 272- and 128-nucleotide sequences in the nucleoprotein (A) and polymerase (B) genes of viral RNA, respectively. Distances and groupings were determined by the p-distance algorithm and neighbor-joining method with the MEGA software program. Bootstrap values >95% are indicated and correspond to 500 replications. For each sequence, the following information is indicated: virus/geography/host/isolate name/GenBank accession no. SFSV, sandfly fever Sicilian virus; SFNV, sandfly fever Naples virus; RVFV, Rift Valley fever virus; UUKV, Uukuniemi virus. Sequences determined in this study are shown in boldface.
