The sample was collected from worked soil which contained organic material around the foundation of a wattle hut. This time of year was the dry season in Katanga Province, so daytime temperatures were in the high 70s and nighttime temperatures in the low 50s. The specimen was placed in a ziplock bag with a slice of apple for transport to Susan Mango's lab at the Huntsman Cancer Institute, Salt Lake City, Utah. From the date of collection until the specimen reached the lab was approximately 2 weeks.
