Maru CZ 285 1966
The strain was isolated in 1962 in the Panama Canal Zone from surface water through hamster passage. It was described by Gale et al. (1966) as a new serovar named maru, reference strain CZ 285. (In Annex 1 and 2 of the list of 1967 (WHO, 1967) the strain is incorrectly designated as CZ 285 D and CZ 285 B respectively.)
The strain was submitted to factor analysis by Kmety (1977) and the results indicated that it should be placed in the subgroup to be named as Hebdomadis.
