Comparative neutralization tests with related viruses were not performed, because we had previously found that murine antiserum developed against the other known phleboviruses in the United States--Sunday Canyon virus (7), Rio Grande virus (8), and Lone Star virus (9)--had no appreciable neutralizing activity against HRTV (Table 2).
Several species of Leishmania and phleboviruses have a common Phlebotomus spp vector.

Sequence analysis showed a high genetic diversity with recognized phleboviruses, suggesting that this virus could represent a new species within the Phlebovirus genus.
Results of routine microbiologic examinations for bacteria by culture and antigen detection were negative in all cases, as were serologic and genetic tests for hantaviruses, phleboviruses, and Rickettsiales bacteria, performed as described (10).

PCR for phleboviruses (2) resulted in a PCR product of the expected size, and the sequence was most closely related to those of isolates belonging to the Sandfly fever Naples virus (SFNV) species (Figure).
The Table summarizes the genetic and sequence features of the genome segments and deduced proteins of HIGV and several selected phleboviruses.

may have been caused by cross-reaction with antibodies directed against other known tick-associated phleboviruses endemic to North America, such as Lone Star virus (5), which is not known to be pathogenic.
SFTS bunyavirus (STFSV) appears to be transmitted by ticks, an unusual difference from other pathogenic phleboviruses, which are transmitted primarily by mosquitoes (3).
Of 249 pools processed, 8 strains of phleboviruses were isolated: 2 TOSV, 3 Punique virus, and 3 other phleboviruses currently being characterized.
