a Species identification was determined by hsp65 sequencing for 113 isolates that had discordant results by PRA-hsp65 and phenotypic studies. For 71 isolates sequencing confirmed the species identification obtained by PRA-hsp65. For an additional 30 isolates, the PRA-hsp65 patterns obtained were previously unreported (see Table 4).

b N, number of isolates for which the PRA-hsp65 identification shown was incorrect.

c Total number of isolates of that species sequenced.
