Discovery NotesSample was collected from landscaping. The first inch of mulch was removed, and the soil was dark. It had rained the night before, and was partly cloudy. The time was 9:42 am.
Naming NotesChisana is a Japanese word for tiny. Kitsune is a Japanese word for fox. The Kitsune is used in many Japanese myths. They are intelligent, and their magical abilities increase with age, and wisdom.
The name was chosen because Gordonia rubripertincta turns orange with age, and the plaques are very tiny.
