A brand-new beetle group!

THE Entomology Research Group of Tenerife (GIET) has discovered a new species of beetle!

The GIET is funded by the Canary Islands Government and, thanks to this grant, they study the wildlife inhabiting Teide National Park’s underground.

The group’s recent findings have thrown up some exciting results. Along with the confirmed beetle species, researchers believe they have also found another three new species: a cockroach, a spider and a centipede.

Unlike so many journalists writing about the resorts, Pamela has not only actually been to Tenerife, she lived on the island for 16 years, for the majority of that time in a rural valley immersed in the local culture in a way that few outsiders have been privileged to do and gaining a wealth of knowledge about the island, its people, their customs, fiestas and celebrations that she is now able to share via this site. Fluent in Spanish, she also translated and reported for the various English-language newspapers.
