Phylogenetic analysis based on partial 16S rRNA gene sequences of Pantoea obtained from this study and some of those available in GenBank. Identification and GenBank accession numbers are indicated for each sample. The phylogenetic tree was constructed using the Hasegawa, Kishino and Yano maximum likelihood method, with bootstrap analysis with 1000 replicates. Numbers on branches indicate support for each clade ≥ 50%. Only one representative sequence of Ae. albopictus Pantoea isolates is listed in the tree corresponding to the classification of the 45 Pantoea isolates according to their ARDRA profile and sequence composition.
