Abstract
We detected Chlamydia pecorum in two koalas (Phascolarctos cinereus) from a closed island population in Victoria, Australia, previously free of Chlamydia infection. The ompA and multilocus sequence type were most closely related to published isolates of livestock rather than koala origin, suggesting potential cross-species transmission of C. pecorum.
