Abstract

A total of 66 serovars of potentially pathogenic species were examined by slot blot hybridization, and 57 of these serovars were classified in six DNA homology groups. In cases in which common serovars were studied, the results were in general agreement with the results of previous workers, who used different DNA homology methods. However, we propose a new species, , comprising the following serovars: Bulgarica, butembo, cynopteri, dania, grippotyphosa, kabura, kambale, ramisi, and tsaratsovo. Seven of these serovars have not had their DNAs studied by other workers.
