Additional file 1:

Phylogenetic position of Wolbachia wsp sequence of Oedothorax gibbosus. [GenBank:HQ286290]. Tree was constructed by Bayesian tree searching as implemented in MrBayes [43] on a subset of Wolbachia wsp sequences available at GenBank, with indication of the major Wolbachia supergroups. Node values represent posterior probabilities of the clades. Genbank accession numbers are given in front of the species name. Sequences that do not originate from spider hosts are preceded with the taxonomic group to which the host species belongs, spider hosts are underlined. Oedothorax gibbosus is shown in bold and italics.
