Molecular identification of Rickettsia spp. detected in the present study based on the phylogenetic trees of rrs, gltA, groEL and ompA genes. The trees were reconstructed based on the maximum likelihood method implemented in PhyML v3.0, and mid-point rooted for clarity and the scale bar represents the number of nucleotide substitutions per site. Bootstrap values were calculated with 1000 replicates of the alignment. Sequences marked with black solid triangle (▲) and black dot () indicate the representative sequences determined from blood samples and tick samples, respectively
