Identification of the clones sequenced in the four weevil species. To identify the endosymbiotic diversity, clones were sequenced in adult females belonging to the four weevil species and live-trapped in two sites (see Methods). We described the best hit blast of each clone and the ratio of the number of similar nucleotides to the total number of nucleotides (called Identities).
