Discovery NotesOur sample was found in a fenced in compost bin in Caddo Valley, Arkansas. It was a dry sample.
Naming NotesWe named this plaque Oakenshield because
although it is bigger than both of our other samples(ranging in diameter from about 2 mm to 5 mm), it is still pretty small because they are after all plaques. Also Oakenshield kills Orcs which reproduce quickly and infect the land like bacteria does, so Oakenshield is like the plaque.
