*Isolates were from mixed cloacal and oropharyngeal swab specimens collected in Nachang city, Jiangxi Province. Nucleotide identity was calculated by using DNAStar software ( from the complete coding sequence of each gene segment. HA, hemagglutinin; M, matrix protein; NA, neuraminidase; NP, nucleoprotein; NS, nonstructural protein; NT, not tested; PA, polymerase acidic protein; PB, polymerase basic protein.
