Robinsoni Robinson 1962
The strain was isolated from a sick canefield worker in North Queensland in 1951 by Smith et al. (1954), who found the strain to be antigenically different from strain Zanoni. The strain was forwarded for further investigation to Broom, who reported that the strain "has a specific antigen which differs from L. pyrogenes and L. australisB (=L. zanoni)" (Alexander, Smith, 1962). The strain was then studied by Alexander and Smith (1962) and described as a new serovar named robinsoni, with ref. strain Robinson.
The strain was later submitted to factor analysis by Kmety (1967), who confirmed its separate serological status. Later it was suggested that the serovar should be placed in the subgroup Pyrogenes (Dikken, Kmety, 1978).
