Discovery NotesThe phage was found in parkland, near a waterfall and a pond in a wooded area. The area is near to major walking paths. It is also located near the major road that cuts through the park.
Naming NotesThe word Plagueis sounds similar to plague and although this may sound unoriginal, it is to describe its living conditions, which are very unclean.
