  1. aNumerical identifiers match international designations, letter identifiers were assigned to ribotypes previously detected in our laboratory, and WR numbers were assigned to ribotypes that have not been previously identified in our laboratory or that have only been see in wildlife (i.e., WR3 which was detected in a raccoon in 2010)
