Sequence alignment of Hematodinium sp. clones. The consensus sequence from 131 environmental clones, derived from 109 identical sequences, is designated by “+”, and is aligned with the four most divergent clones in the library; one clone from Tom’s Cove (TC) in August, and three from November. Also shown is alignment with GenBank sequences from C. sapidus isolates (Csap: Accession DQ925229 joined with JN641990) and the portunid crab Liocarcinus depurator (Ldepur: Accession EF153729 joined with JN641974). The triangle (▲) indicates the boundary between ITS1 and the 5.8 S rRNA gene.
