Phylogenetic analysis based on nucleotide sequences of the medium segment of Schmallenberg virus samples isolated from blood of acutely infected animals in 2011 or 2012 (blue) or sequenced directly from the blood of viremic cattle in 2014 (red) and from organ samples of malformed newborns (black) (7). Scale bar indicates nucleotide substitutions per site.
