Discovery NotesIt is discovered in a pond near the center of our campus, which like most ponds in Massachusetts they also consist of a large population of goose yearly. Similar to the sewage, I thought it could also consist of phages, which I did discover plenty of them.
Naming NotesAnser aureola is "goose halo" in latin and "golden goose" when translated as a whole. This is probably the best name ever.

Plaque NotesAs the name suggested, it has a halo around the plaque, which is further emphasized when it is neighboring with other plaques almost as if they like being grouped together. Other than that, they also have a clear center with rough edges, consistent with 2-4 cm in length.
