Recreo 380 1977
The strain, isolated from an opossum (Philander opossum) in Nicaragua by Clark et al. (1966), was typed by Galton under the laboratory code LT 957 (WHO, 1967). Before any description was published, the strain appeared under provisional status in the serovar list of 1967 (WHO, 1967) with the serovar name recreo. The strain was submitted to factor analysis and described as a new serovar (Kmety, 1977) and it was suggested that it should be placed in the subserogroup Wolffi of the serogroup Sejroe.
Confirmative typing results by agglutinin-absorption test method were not published until 1982 (Sulzer et al., 1982). In this publication the original strain designation 380 is given, which therefore takes priority over the code number.
