nicaragua 1011 1982
The strain was isolated from a weasel (Mustela nivalis) in Nicaragua by Clark and studied by Galton (WHO, 1967), who suggested the name nicaragua.
Although an official description of this serovar was not yet published, it was included in the list of serovars of 1967 (WHO, 1967), under provisional status, named nicaragua, ref. strain LT 990 (CDC laboratory code number).
The strain was submitted to factor analysis by Kmety (unpublished data), and is quoted in Appendix V. of Dikken and Kmety's publication (1978) as a member of the subgroup Australis.
The strain was published by Sulzer et al. (1982), who quoted the name of the reference strain as 1011. This designation replaces the former laboratory code LT 990.
