Mycobacterium phage Pequenito
Duplicate of Mowgli
When sequenced, this phage turned out to be 100% identical to phage Mowgli. This was interesting since they were isolated 6 years apart, one in Missouri and one in Michigan, so extremely unlikely to be a case of laboratory contamination. But the genomes are identical, so this has been flagged as a duplicate.

Discovery NotesFound in compost. The soil was dry and the compost box was above the ground.
Naming NotesThe plaques are all less than 1 mm in size so they are very small, hence the name being small in Spanish.
