Discovery NotesThe phage was isolated from a feces sample pulled from a manure pile at a horse far. There were six horses and a mule contributing to this pile, one of the horses was ill. It is unclear whether the sample comes from the sick or the healthy horses.The sample was initially pulled by Cassandra Ellis.
Naming NotesI chose the name in part for the binary star system Spica and then added the E to the front because I like the way it sounds.
