Cynopteri 3522 C 1939
The strain was isolated in 1938 by Collierand Mochtar from a kidney of a bat (Cynopterus), captured in Jakarta (Batavia), Java, Indonesia. The strain did not appear to be pathogenic for mice or guinea-pigs. Cross-agglutination tests carried out at the Eijkman Institute, Jakarta, showed that the strain was not related to any of the available serovars and therefore they considered it to be a new serovar (Collier et al., 1939). In the review article on "Leptospirosis in Indonesia" (Collier, 1948) the serovar was named L. cynopteri. The strain appears first in the list of serovars of 1959 (WHO, 1959) as a recognized serovar in the Cynopteri serogroup.
