Phylogenetic analyses of EHDV based on segment 3 (A) and segment 2 (B) of YNDH/V079/2018 from Mangshi County, Yunnan Province, China (red dot), compared with other global EHDV isolates. The following convention was used to identify sequences: GenBank accession no., EHDV-serotype, country, isolation year. Eastern and Western topotypes of segment 3 and A−D groups of segment 2 were assigned as described by Anthony et al. (2,10); a distinct segment 2 group of the strain YNDH/V079/2018 isolated in China (2) is marked as group E. The nontyped strain from Japan isolated in 1998 is included in accession nos. LC202966 and LC202944 (4). We did not include the nontyped strain from South Africa, due to the lack of sequence information in GenBank. BTV strains were used as the outgroups. Number at each branch indicates a bootstrap value. Scale bars indicate nucleotide substitutions per site. BTV, bluetongue virus; EHDV, epizootic hemorrhagic disease virus.
