A trypanosomatid species, designated as Typing Unit 1 (TU1) by sequences of SL RNA gene repeats, has been found in the intestine of pyrrhocorids (Insecta: Heteroptera) in Europe, Mediterranean, Central America and some parts of Asia and Africa. Phylogenetic analysis of the SL repeat sequences has shown that the isolates group in the tree according to their geographic origin. The maximal sequence divergence was observed in parasites from Neotropics suggesting the origin within and subsequent… CONTINUE READING
