So mid 2016 I described a new species of ant, and here is a new article that mentions that discovery:
I was approached by the author to comment on biodiversity in Hong Kong.
Personally I believe that we should strive to preserve as much diversity as we can in our plants and animals in all environments.
The discovery of a new ant species right next to the University of Hong Kong is no surprising feat, there are hundreds of thousands (if not millions) of undescribed species of insects and other animals out there.
We just have to find them before they are lost.
