|Strain||Mini-exon, bp||24S α rRNA, bp||18S rRNA, bp||Lineage|
|FL Opo 15*||350||110||175||I|
|GA Rac 103*||None||120||155||IIa|
|FL Rac 5*||400||120||155||IIa|
|FL Rac 13||350||110, 120||155, 175||I/IIa†|
|FL Rac 46||400||110, 120||155||I/IIa†|

*Denotes isolates used as representative banding patterns seen for classic lineage typing.
†Because of atypical banding patterns, a clear definition of an isolate as type I vs. type IIa could not be obtained.
