Discovery NotesChymera was isolated from a soil sample collected from Lake Ray Roberts in Sanger, Texas in late August. It was taken roughly 3 meters away from a stagnant pond located a couple hundred meters from the lake itself. It was collected a foot deep in moist ground, mid-day. The temperature of the day was in the upper seventies.
Naming NotesNamed for the mythological Greek monster, the Chimera. Notable for its maliciousness, odd properties, and tendency to annihilate agar plates.
