Discovery NotesRiver sediment from the Bitteroot River near my house in Stevensville MT. The sample was very moist and was under about 3cm of water. Just the top 1-2 cm were taken from the area. The sample was taken on 9/15/10 around 4:14 PM and the air temperature that day was about 66 degrees F. The water of course was much colder but exact temperature was not taken. The sample was near a mildly used trail but in a rural area far from buildings. Lots of trees and organic matter surrounded the area and it is never reached by direct sunlight.

Plaque NotesThe plaques from this phage have two morphologies a big and a small. I could not tell if these were just the morphologies or the small plaques were just beginning and the large plaques were older. But every plate had this same pattern on it. Spot tests were all big round and fairly clear. The plaques are all easy to see but somewhat turbid.
