New Pico Bonito expedition species

During this expedition (June 2013) through the, for now, intact rainforest of Pico Bonito, Honduras, several species were found new to science. For now, the scientific description of a new frog- and newt species are not yet published. However, a new species of damselfly, sampled during the same expedition is now described in the scientific journal Zookeys. The new species was called Amphipteryx jaroli, named after the famous scientist Jared Diamond. These and other discoveries were also published (in Dutch) in the “Standaard evening” of 3 june, 2014.
