In this analysis, the Nycteris bat CoV clustered as a phylogenetically basal sister clade with HKU4, HKU5, and EMC/2012 and the associated European Pipistrellus viruses (Figure 2, Appendix, panel A, wwwnc.
To confirm the RdRpbased classification, we amplified the complete glycoprotein-encoding Spike gene and sequenced it for the novel Nycteris bat virus.

The amino acid sequences of viruses from Nycteris bats in Ghana (3) and the 2c prototype bat CoVs, HKU4 and HKU5, from China (6) differed by 5.
The identified viruses from 2 patients (previously referred to as England/ Qatar/2012 and EMC/2012) are genetically related and belong to group C betacoronavirus, which is most related to CoVs from Nycteris bats in Ghana and Pipistrellus bats in Europe (2,3).
