Parvimico materdei lived about 18 million years ago in what is now the Peruvian Amazon.
Lithoredo abatanica, a very weird shipworm found in a river in the Philippines, represents both a new species and genus.
The millipede is only 8.2 millimeters long, making it an “an extreme case of miniaturization.”
“Darting from the water depths, the spines would have been a terrifying sight to many of the smallest marine creatures that lived during that time.”
It's exactly what it sounds like.
Citizen scientists are helping to fill a research gap caused by decades of turmoil.
But you can't just name a new species anything.
Researchers claim to have found a new, ancient human-like species.
But beyond the pure wow factor, the find also represents the first example of convergent evolution ever observed in a horned dinosaur.
