Human head and body lice host the obligate endosymbiotic bacterium “ Candidatus Riesia pediculicola.” In this announcement, we describe the complete genome sequence of a “ Ca. Riesia pediculicola” strain isolated from the human head louse, Pediculus humanus subsp. capitis . The inter- and intraspecific variations of endosymbiont genomes were investigated, and this strain was found to display high-level variations in its genome.
