David Brown  asked the Naked Scientists:
Protozoan parasites of the genus Plasmodium cause malaria.

Protozoan parasites of the genus Leishmania cause leishmaniasis. In Darwinian evolution, when was the last common ancestor of the genus Plasmodium and the genus Leishmania?

David Brown, Marietta, Georgia, USA

What do you think?
