© 2019 Elsevier Inc. IncHI2-ST1 plasmids play an important role in co-mobilizing genes conferring resistance to critically important antibiotics and heavy metals. Here we present the identification and analysis of IncHI2-ST1 plasmid pSPRC-Echo1, isolated from an Enterobacter hormaechei strain from a Sydney hospital, which predates other multi-drug resistant IncHI2-ST1 plasmids reported from Australia. Our time-resolved phylogeny analysis indicates pSPRC-Echo1 represents a new lineage of IncHI2-ST1 plasmids and show how their diversification relates to the era of antibiotics.
