Ratnapura Wumalasena 1970
The strain was isolated during the period 1965-1966 from a patient in the Ratnapura district of Sri Lanka (Ceylon). The strain is mentioned in the Fifth Information Exchange in Leptospirosis (1968) by Chernukha et al..
The strain was described by Kokovin and Chernukha (1970), who proposed the serovar name ratnapura, with ref. strain Wumalasena.
It should be noted that according to the current criteria that define a separate serovar (TSC 1987), the serovars Grippotyphosa, Ratnapura, Valbuzzi and Muelleri actually consist of a single serovar (Hartskeerl et al., 2004).
