ruparupae M 3 1984
The strain was isolated from the kidney of an opossum (Didelphis marsupialis) in 1970 at Tingo Maria in the Peruvian jungle and published as a new serovar of the Sejroe group, named rupa rupa - reference strain M 3 (Liceras de Hidalgo et al., 1984). In accordance with the rules of the code the serovar designation was contracted to one word ruparupae. Further investigations showed its closer relationship with the members of the Mini group. Serovar ruparupae was recognized by the TSC in 1986 and it was placed in the Mini serogroup in the Revised List (Kmety and Dikken,1988), but marked by (o), since its serovar status was confirmed by a RL after the 1986 TSC meeting. It will be included in the attached updated list, unconditionally.
