Rio Rr 5 1981
The strain was isolated in May 1973 from the kidney of a black rat (Rattus rattus) trapped alive in the district of Seropedica State of Rio de Janeiro (Cordeiro et al.,1981, a and b), who studied and described the strain as a new serovar within the Javanica serogroup. The serovar name rio was proposed. Being found to be serologically more related to members of the reestablished Sarmin group, it was placed in that group in the Revised List (1988), but under provisional status (Kmety & Dikken, 1988), as its serovar status had not yet been confirmed by a RL.
