Louisiana LSU 1945 1964
The strain was isolated from the kidney of an armadillo (Dasypus novemcinctus) in the state of Louisiana of the United States and described as a new serovar of the Autumnalis group named louisiana, reference strain LSU` 1945 (Roth et al., 1964). It appears in the WHO "list of serotypes" (1967) within the Autumnalis serogroup. However, Dikken and Kmety (1978) considered that this serovar represents a new serogroup, which they named Louisiana. This proposal was accepted by the TSC in 1982 (Boston) and serovar louisiana is placed within the Louisiana serogroup in the Revised List of 1988 (Kmety & Dikken, 1988).
