The extrachromosomal DNA of Sodalis glossinidius from two tsetse fly species was sequenced and contained four circular elements: three plasmids, pSG1 (82 kb), pSG2 (27 kb), and pSG4 (11 kb), and a bacteriophage-like pSG3 (19 kb) element. The information suggests S. glossinidius is evolving towards an obligate association with tsetse flies.
