Additional file 1:

Sequence alignment of 348 bp of ITS1 region of L. donovani, L. infantum, Leishmania sp. (cow in Europe), Leishmania sp. (horse in Europe), L. siamensis (mare in the USA), L. siamensis lineage PG, and L. siamensis lineage TR. Bases that are identical to those of the L. siamensis lineage PG are indicated by dots, missing bases are indicated by hyphens, and bases that are different from those of the L. siamensis lineage PG are given.
