The unrooted phylogenetic tree inferred from DNA sequences of four markers using Neighbor Joining method. The bootstrapping values less than 50 are omitted. The bootstrapping and posterior probability values estimated by Maximum parsimony and Bayesian inference methods are shown in parenthesis at each node, respectively. Asterisks indicate bootstrapping and posterior probability values that are below 50 or 0.5 or are not calculated by the analyses. Dense lines indicate Leishmania species complexes as described by Lainson and Shaw . The species complex of L. adleri, L. turanica, L. gerbilli, and L. arabica are unclassified. Dot lines indicate the lineage sections suggested by Cupolillo et al. . (a) SSU-rRNA, (b) ITS1, (c) hsp70, (d) cyt b.
