Maximum-likelihood tree of the large (3430–3895 bp) ribosomal DNA locus previously used to describe
Moraxella bovoculi. Branch lengths are shown to-scale with the exception of M. boevrei. Taxon labels are either GenBank accession numbers from [3, 22] or isolate numbers from the present study; all three M. bovoculi from  are ocular isolates from clinical samples. The four IBK asymptomatic nasopharyngeal M. bovoculi isolates are in bold. Support values subtending nodes are non-parametric bootstrap proportions followed by SH-like aLRT support. Nodes with support values below 0.5 have been collapsed.
