Discovery NotesSample was taken from mud near a green area by a heavily transited area in George Mason's Fairfax campus.

This area was chosen in hopes that hardy, aggressive phages had been brought from all around by the people walking near what probably the busiest building on campus, namely the Johnson Center.
Naming NotesCabezon means big headed in spanish. It is used colloquially to denote that someone is stubborn. This phage has this name as it was difficult to get good plates with it as it displayed turbid and lytic plaque morphologies, with the former being more common.

With a little nudging, it produced pretty good plates.
