    Talking Introducing Uroplatus finaritra, a 'giant' phantasticus


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Published today in Zootaxa: Uroplatus finaritra, the 'giant' phantasticus from Makira, reaching total lengths of 15 cm, with a dark red mouth. This is the latest result of our work on the taxonomy of the Uroplatus ebenaui group, led again by Fano Ratsoavina. I'm thrilled that we have finally published this wonderful new species!

    Looks great! Nice that this species is finally described.
    Saw today a Mongabay article about this species.
