Legionella pneumophila, the bacteria known to cause Legionnaires disease. Legionnaires disease, also known as Legionellosis, is associated with water-based aerosols often resulting from poorly maintained air conditioning cooling towers and potable water systems. The disease got its name in 1976 when an outbreak of pneumonia occurred at an American Legion convention in Philadelphia.
