Myocastoris LSU 1551 1963
The strain was isolated from a nutria (Myocastor coypus) in the USA in 1962 by Roth et al. (1963), who described it as a new subserovar of L. zanoni named L. zanoni myocastoris. In the list of 1965 (WHO, 1965) it appears under provisional status and in the list of 1967 (WHO, 1967) as a recognized serovar named myocastoris, with ref. strain LSU 1551. The strain was submitted to factor analysis by Kmety (1967) who confirmed its separate status. Later it was suggested that the serovar should be placed in the subgroup Zanoni (Dikken, Kmety, 1978).
