How diverse is the genus Wolbachia? Multiple-gene sequencing reveals a putatively new Wolbachia supergroup recovered from spider mites (Acari: Tetranychidae).

At least 20% of all arthropods and a few nematode species are contaminated with intracellular micro organism of the genus Wolbachia. This extremely diverse genus has been subdivided into eight “supergroups” (A to H) on the foundation of nucleotide sequence information. Here, we report the discovery of a new Wolbachia supergroup recovered from the spider … Read more
