Investigation of Tatenale virus–like hantavirus lineages in the United Kingdom. A) Locations on the UK mainland where Tatenale virus–like hantavirus lineages have been found: Tattenhall, Cheshire, the site where Tatenale virus was discovered (1); and Kielder Forest, Northumberland. Kielder Forest sample sites are indicated in the inset (Geordies Knowe [GRD]: 55°11′1.61′′N, 2°35′3.05′′W; Cheese Sike [CHE]: 55°13′8.39′′N, 2°32′26.50′′W; Scaup [SCP]: 55°15′44.18′′N, 2°32′41.05′′W).

B) Bayesian phylogenetic tree for the hantavirus genomic large segment (318-bp fragment with no missing data), showing relationships among Tatenale virus-like lineages and other relevant lineages. Bold represents the Tatenale virus–like lineage found in this study; either sequence reported here produces the same tree. Phylogenetic analysis was conducted by using a general time reversible plus gamma plus invariant sites model within MrBayes (8) software using Markov chain Monte Carlo chain lengths of 1 million and a strict clock. We estimated substitution models using MrModelTestV2 (9). Sequences are represented by the taxonomic names, strain (if >1 is included), and GenBank accession numbers. The tree is drawn to scale with node values representing the posterior probabilities. Scale bar represents nucleotide substitutions per site.
