Summary

Virus strain LEIV-284 Ka was isolated fromIxodes (Ceratixodes) putus tick collected in August, 1970, fromPhalacrocorax pelagicus Pallas (pelagic cormorants) on Commodore Islands. The strain was shown to be identical with strains of Tyuleniy virus, a group B arbovirus, recovered in 1969 on Tyuleniy Island, Sea of Okhotsk. On Commodore Islands, hemagglutination inhibiting antibodies for the virus were found in 6% of the residents, 22% of fur seals, 24% ofUria aalge (common murres), 23% ofLunda cirrhata (tufted puffins) and in 11% of theRissa tridactyla (black legged Kittiwakes).
