Guaricura Bov.G. 1980
The strain was isolated from the kidney of a healthy cow during a survey for leptospirosis in Zebu cattle in Brazil from 1962 to 1968. The strain was designated as Bov.G. and described as a new serovar by Santa Rosa (1980). As the name should be treated adjectively in accordance with the IC, the suggested serovar name guaricurus was changed to guaricura. The serovar Guaricura was officially recognized by the TSC in 1986 and included in the Revised List of 1988 (Kmety & Dikken, 1988).
