Figure S1. Polymorphic residues of the 154-amino acid alignment of apyrase (First nucleotide: 166 in GenBank accession AY845193, Phlebotomus ariasi), with single alleles representing each Phlebotomus species except P. ariasi, which is represented by all amino acid alleles shared by at least two French or Spanish populations and those predominating in Morocco and Portugal.

Figure S2. Parsimony network (TCS v1.21) showing the genealogical relationships between the numbered nucleotide alleles of the apyrase of Phlebotomus ariasi (APYaN), indicating the absence of sibling species (nine-step 95% connection limit); reticulations, indicative of recurrent mutations or recombination; the presence in Morocco of alleles from only two parts of the network, one not shared with other regions; and the absence of allele 01 from Morocco and Portugal.

Figure S3. Association between genetic distances (FST/1−FST) based on apyrase nucleotide sequences and straight-line geographical distances for pairs of populations of Phlebotomus ariasi.
