  • a Groups of two or more highly related sequences (≥98% identical) are considered to belong to the same sequence type. Sequences listed on the same line represent different types belonging to the same division and detected only once within a library.

  • b Based on direct sequence comparisons or inferred from RFLP patterns. Percentages do not add up to 100% because not all unique RFLPs were sequenced.

  • c Potential contaminant (42).
