Discovery NotesWas taken from hard, wet, packed soil that had previously had a swimming pool on top of it for over 3 months.

May be Podoviridae? No tails were seen, only heads, but no stubby tail was detected.
Naming NotesI had a lot of difficulty getting a webbed plate and the process of webbing a plate was a pain. This made me think of my mule that is also a pain. Another name for a donkey which is a parent of a mule is burro.
