Phylogroup I comprises the worldwide serotype 1 [classical rabies virus and Australian Bat Lyssavirus (ABL)] (28), (29), serotype 4 (Duvenhage virus), serotype 5 [European Bat Lyssavirus 1 (EBL-1)] and serotype 6 [European Bat Lyssavirus 2 (EBL-2)] (30), (31).
Until the AAHL researchers conducted their test, the classic rabies virus was thought to have just four close relatives: Lagos bat virus, Mokola virus, Duvenhage virus, and European bat virus.
