Geyaweera Geyaweera 1968
The strain was isolated in 1965 from a patient in Sri Lanka by Pura and described by Kokovin et al. (1968) as a new serovar of the Hebdomadis group named geyaweera. The new serovar was found by Wolff (personal communication) to be related to Sejroe, Saxkoebing and Haemolytica. Therefore, it was placed in the Revised List (1988) in the Sejroe group (Kmety & Dikken, 1988). It should be noted that in some papers the serovar name is quoted as jeyaweera (Nityananda et al., 1971).
