Data from: Origin, acquisition and diversification of heritable bacterial endosymbionts in louse flies and bat flies

Olivier Duron, Boris Droz, Arnaud Berthomieu & Steven M. Goodman
The γ-proteobacterium Arsenophonus and its close relatives (Arsenophonus and like organisms, ALOs) are emerging as a novel clade of endosymbionts, which are exceptionally widespread in insects. The biology of ALOs is, however, in most cases entirely unknown, and it is unclear how these endosymbionts spread across insect populations. Here, we investigate this aspect through the examination of the presence, the diversity and the evolutionary history of ALOs in 25 related species of blood-feeding flies: tsetse...
