The present analyses place P. fragile in a position that is incongruent with the early branching status of P. fragile amongst P-vivax-related primate Plasmodium species propose by Escalante et al. (Proc Natl Acad Sci USA 2005 102: 1980).

Despite its small population and isolate location Papua New Guinea (PNG) with a malaria burden comparable to sub-Saharan Africa, its intense transmission of all 4 human Plasmodium species and an unrivalled combination of environmental and human variation offers unique perspectives on malaria vaccines.
