Rama 316 1966
The strain was isolated from an opossum (Philander opossum) in 1962 in Nicaragua and described as a new serovar named rama, ref. strain 316, by Clark et al. (1966). The strain was studied and reported by Galton (WHO, 1967) and is first recorded in the serovar list of 1967 (WHO, 1967) under provisional status with the laboratory code LT 955. The serovar was finally recognized by the TSC in 1986, and is included in the Revised List of 1988 with the original reference strain designation 316 (Kmety & Dikken, 1988).
