  • a Frequency 1 (F1) refers to the frequency of the major ospC group in the sample of sequences (n = 114,432 sequences), and values in parentheses are numbers of sequences.

  • b Frequency 2 (F2) refers to the frequency of the major ospC group in the sample of infected nymphs (n = 193 nymphs), and values in parentheses are numbers of infected nymphs.

  • c Frequency 3 (F3) refers to the frequency of the major ospC group in the sample of infected and uninfected nymphs (n = 2,500 nymphs), and values in parentheses are numbers of infected nymphs.

  • d These native major ospC groups were horizontally transferred from B. afzelii to B. garinii.

  • e These exotic major ospC groups were horizontally transferred from B. garinii to B. afzelii.
