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.
