Discovery NotesIapetus was discovered in my front yard, and was taken from a plot of soil where the season before, a cherry tree died. The tree died of a strange infection that ate the tree out from the inside out and killed the tree in the span of less than a year.
Naming NotesThe name Iapetus came from the Greek Titan Iapetus, who is the titan of mortal destruction and death. The name is also shared with one of Saturn's moons.
