Perameles Bandicoot 343 1964

The strain was isolated in 1958 from a bandicoot (Perameles nasuta) in North Queensland, Australia, by Emanuel. It was studied by Wolff and Bohlander (1964), who described it as anew serovar named paramelis of the Hebdomadis serogroup. This name was later corrected to perameles (WHO, 1967). The strain was submitted to factor analysis by Kmety (1977), who confirmed its serovar status and suggested placing it in the proposed new Mini serogroup.
During the TSC Boston meeting of 1982 this proposal was accepted.
While the strain was classified as L. meyeri in Brenner et al., 1999, a switch of strains became apparent later on and the serovar and strain were reclassified as belonging to L. interrogans.
