Phylogenetic relationships among DNA sequences most closely related to LwiJO7007. A maximum likelihood tree was constructed with a 613 bp-long alignment (Dataset 2). Bootstrap values > 70% are indicated next to their respective nodes. Mammalian orders containing sampled sequences are indicated above the branches defining each lineage. Felid illustrations are shown to designate their clades. Tiger is represented in blue, domestic cat in red and L. wiedii in green. The scale bar at the bottom represents distance in nucleotide substitutions per site. All sequences are listed in Table 1 and Additional file 1: Table S1.
