Spotted-fever-group species, which cause several similar diseases that are widely distributed geographically (e.g., Rocky Mountain spotted fever, Kenya tick typhus, Siberian tick typhus), include R. rickettsii, R. conorii, and R. siberica. The group of species causing scrub fever includes R. tsutsugamushi.
