    Analysis of Borrelia isolates collected from ticks, birds, and rodents from the southeastern United States revealed the presence of well-established populations of Borrelia burgdorferi sensu stricto, Borrelia bissettii, Borrelia carolinensis, and Borrelia sp. nov. Multilocus sequence analysis of 5 genomic loci from 7 samples from South Carolina representing Borrelia sp. nov. showed their close relatedness to California strains known as genomospecies 1 and separation from any other known species of the B. burgdorferi sl complex. The sequences of all analyzed isolates share the same RFLP patterns of the 5S-23S intergenic spacer region and contain unique signature nucleotides in the 16S rRNA gene. We propose that 7 Borrelia sp. nov. isolates from South Carolina and 2 California isolates designated as genomospecies 1 comprise a single species, which we name Borrelia americana sp. nov. All strains are associated with Ixodes pacificus or Ixodes minor and their rodent and bird hosts.
