Canicola serogroup - 1933
The Canicola group now contains two more serovars than it did in the 1967 WHO list, viz: Portlandvere and Kuwait. In the Annex 2 of that list the serovar name attached to the strain LT 1014 was given as Azuhi, but that name was never validly published. When published in 1969 by Tedesco et al. the serovar was named Galtoni, and this name has been accepted in place of Azuli.
On the basis of factor analysis it has been suggested that the group should be divided into two subgroups viz: Canicola and Schueffneri (Dikken & Kmety, 1978).
