Ribosomal RNA gene restriction patterns have been determined for 43 strains of representing 10 serovars and eight reference strains of and Strains within a serovar produced highly related or identical ribotype patterns: in particular, 12 strains of serovar , five strains of serovar , two strains of serovar and three strains of serovar produced ribotype patterns consistent with serotype designations. Moreover, variety (serotype 8a8b), a coleopteran pathogen, could be distinguished from the more common lepidopteran pathogens of this serotype () by ribotyping. The correlation of ribotype patterns with serotype suggests a clonal population structure for
