Discovery NotesDulcita was discovered in the bushes behind the Glaske science wing of LeTourneau University in Longview, TX to the right of the dumpsters, fifth bush from the right, in moist, mulchy soil at 10:19am. We found Dulcita in a hole that was dug approximately 4cm deep and 8cm wide. Numerous insects including ants, gnats, and flies were found in the same area. The temperature was 24° C, mostly cloudy and with high humidity.
Naming NotesWe decided on the name Dulcita because it was found at the same time that we were isolating a phage found under a pepper vine. So, we decided to name that phage Koreni (taken from the Czech word for 'spicy') and this phage Dulcita (Spanish for 'sweetie').
