Kremastos Kremastos 1958
The strain was isolated in 1952 from a patient in North Queensland, Australia, by Smith et al. (1954). It was thought to represent a new serovar although no description of the serovar is given.
The strain was studied serologically by Wolff and Bohlander (1958), who confirmed its separate serovar status and suggested the name Kremastos for the strain, and also for the serovar designation.
The strain was submitted to factor analysis by Kmety (1977), who on the basis of the results suggested that it should be placed in a subgroup to be named Borincana.
