Figure 3. Bayesian maximum clade credibility tree for Mayaro virus in the Americas on the basis of 1,731 nt of envelope (E2–E1) genes, Venezuela, 2010. The purple circle above Venezuela indicates the island of Trinidad. Taxon labels indicate year of isolation, strain designation, and country of isolation. Terminal branches of the tree are colored according to the sampled location of the taxon at the tip. Internal branches are colored according to the most probable (modal) location of their parental nodes. Nodes with posterior probabilities (clade credibilities) ≥0.90 are indicated in black. Scale bar indicates time in years.
