According to the Kauffmann-White scheme, 39 pairs of serovars in Salmonella serogroup C2 differ only by the minor antigen O:6(1). We characterized strains from 10 serovars representing five Salmonella serogroup C2 pairs. All strains demonstrated variable expression of O:6(1). These results indicate that these pairs are not distinct serovars.
