The S and M segments of a hantavirus, enzymatically amplified from tissues of Cloudland deer mice (Peromyscus maniculatus nubiterrae) captured during 1985 in West Virginia, diverged from strains of Four Corners virus from the southwestern United States by more than 16% and 6% at the nucleotide and amino acid levels, respectively. Phylogenetic analysis suggested that this virus strain (designated Monongahela) forms a possible evolutionary link between the Four Corners and New York hantaviruses.
