Twenty-four virus strains were isolated from mosquitoes collected in Ecuador. One additional strain each was isolated from this species from Panama and Argentina. All 26 isolates were shown to be related serologically to prototype Gamboa virus, originally isolated from mosquitoes collected in Panama. Antigenic comparisons of eight strains, including prototype Gamboa virus, indicated the existence of four distinct viruses. Neutralization tests with sera from a variety of mammalian and avian species from Argentina provided further evidence that Gamboa serogroup viruses are transmitted between and birds.
