Phylogenetic tree highlighting the position of V. parvula strain Te3T relative to all other type strains within the genus Veillonella. The tree was inferred from 1,378 aligned characters [12,13] of the 16S rRNA gene sequence under the maximum likelihood criterion . The tree was rooted with the type strains of other genera within the family Veillonellaceae. The branches are scaled in terms of the expected number of substitutions per site. Numbers above branches are support values from 1,000 bootstrap replicates if greater than 60%. Lineages with type strain genome sequencing projects registered in GOLD  are shown in blue, published genomes in bold.
