Cuica RP 88 1991
The strain was isolated, during a search for leptospirosis in wild animals, from the urine or kidney of a Marsupial opossum (Metachirus opossum) trapped in a peri-urban area of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, by Pereira et al. (1991), who studied and described the strain as closely related to serovar Weaveri. Further studies by a RL confirmed its separate serovar status. The serovar name cuica has been proposed (personal communication Korver, 1991). Cuica is the local name for marsupial. Because of incomplete description and documentation the serovar is listed with i.t. and i.d. in the attached updated serovar list.
i.t. Strains published without typing results or with incomplete typing results (i.t. means incomplete typing).
i.d. Strains published without data on the history or adequate serovar name (i.d. means incomplete documentation).
