New species Niphargus Kirgizi

It's important to throw in a reminder every now and then of the new species of all sizes being discovered. Herewith a Turkish news report on Niphargus kirgizi, an amhipod crustacean discovered inthe northwestern province of Edirne. It's an eyeless, subterranean animal about 2cm long. Not much in the grand scheme of things, but one more piece added to the mosaic of life on Earth.
