New species!!


Wow, nifty. Awesome!

Scientists have discovered a new species, a new genus, a new family of crustaceans in the South Pacific. They´ve named it Kiwaida (after the Polynisian crustacean god =)…

Its covered in “sinuous, hair-like strands”… Quite nifty. We´re always finding new species in the oceans, but new genus aren´t all that common, let alone new family´s!!
