Discovery NotesLocation (general descriptor) - Sample was collected from outside the Cathedral of Learning. Outside of the cathedral, there is a fountain with revolving doors on the ground floor, on the left and right of the fountain as you are facing the fountain. Sample was collected by the left door, on the plot of grass closest to the left door on the fountain side.

Date and time of collection - Sample was collected at 1618 on 17SEPT2019

Any observation you noticed at time of collection - The soil withdrawn was dry, with lots of small plants and a small brush around it. The air temperature was 81 degrees Fahrenheit, with a tree blocking the path of sunlight from the soil plot, resulting in shade. There was no rain, no humidity, and a medium breeze. The nearest waterway was the fountain, but is not a natural formation. I noticed multiple humans in the area and 1 dog. I noted hearing crickets chirping, but did not see any.
Naming NotesPhage is named Steinfeld, after a friend of mine.
