Tropica CZ 299 1966
The strain was isolated in 1962 from the urine of a Spiny rat (Proechimys semispinosus) in the Panama Canal Zone by Gale et al. (1966), who described it as a new serovar designated tropica, ref. strain CZ 299. Results of factor analysis studies by Manev (1976) confirmed that tropica has a separate serovar status.
