Discovery NotesThe sample taken from dirt surrounding a trash can near Bell Tower in an area had a lot of traffic. The dirt itself was taken from beneath a decomposing leaf.
Naming Notes"Mimado" is a Spanish word meaning "spoiled." To me it's a term of endearment for my lovely little phage pet. It's also appropriate because under the microscope the phage appeared to be rather fragile - to flourish it has to be spoiled a bit.
