Hainan-whitcombi 6712 1984
The strain was isolated from a patient in Hainan province, China, in 1967 and described by Gao et al. (1984) as a new serovar named hainan-whitcombi. The serovar was recognized by the TSC (Manchester, 1986) in spite of its incorrect naming, which it is expected to change to hainan (personal communication, Chen Ting-zuo, 1987). Because of incomplete documentation the serovar is listed with i.d. in the Revised List of 1988 (Kmety & Dikken, 1988). Recently some laboratories have reported controversial typing results. Therefore the serovar is now marked by ++ in the attached updated list.
++ Strains which have given rise to controversial typing results but which were validly described.
