The taxonomists continue to work uncovering the biological keanekagaraman Indonesia. Many new species native to Indonesia have been found with the involvement of researchers Indonesia during 2012.

Among ratusa found, there are 10 interesting species have been described. Everything indicates that Indonesia is a country rich in biodiversity. The findings of this new species should be more open awareness of nature conservation.

What are the 10 most attractive species native to Indonesia? Here's the description.

Spider Small Eyes

This species was discovered by researchers Biology Research Center Indonesian Institute of Sciences (LIPI), Cahyo Rahmadi. This species was named Amauropelma matakecil, according to its characteristics have small eyes.

Amauropelma matakecil Menoreh found in the karst region. This species is found in the genus Amauropelma Java. Typically, Amauropelma genus found in Australia. The findings confirmed the karst region's rich biodiversity.

Wasps Garuda

Wasps newfound insect specialists through cooperation LIPI Biological Research Center, Rosichon Ubaidilah, the University of California, Davis. This species was already described in 2011 but only officially published in the journal ZooKeys.

Wasps named Megalara eagle has a huge jaw that closes the side of the head. If the jaw is opened, its length would exceed the forefoot individual wasp itself. This species is found through Mekongga expedition.

Orchid Mini

The species is named Dendrobium mucrovaginatum described by taxonomists orchids Indonesia, Destario Purwodadi Metusala of the Botanical Gardens, LIPI. This new orchid species orchid called mini because its diameter is less than 1 cm, while another orchid average of 5 cm.

With mini size, orchid found in Borneo is worth consideration as an ornamental plant in apartments in big cities. The findings are published in the Journal Malesian Orchid.

Bats Without Tails

LIPI researcher Biology Research Center, Ibn Maryanto, is behind the invention of the species taxonomists named Thoopterus suhaniae this. Bats are said to have no tail because the tail was reduced to rudiment.

This species is the second type genus Thoopterus found on Sulawesi. This finding suggests that the revolution is a hotspot Pteropodidae Sulawesi, class of bats that eat fruit or flowers spread across Africa and Asia.

Swamp Frog "Stump"

Hylarana marsh frog aka the muscular found in the swamp in Riau. This frog has large glands of the upper arm, making tanmpak muscular arms. LIPI researcher, Amir Hamidy is the man behind the invention.

Conservation status of H. swamp is still unknown. However, these frogs are very susceptible to changes in the environment so prone to extinction. The findings are published in the June issue of the journal Current Herpetology 2012.

4 Rainbow Fish Species

Four species of rainbow fish are found is Melanotaenia Arguni, Melanotaenia Uris, Melanotaenia veoliae and Melanotaenia wanoma. Each species is distinguished color pattern scales. All species found in Papua.

The four species are found on the cooperation of several researchers, one Kadarusman grasping of the Academy of Fisheries Sorong. These findings are part of an effort to uncover the diversity of species in Papua by Lengguru-Kaimana expedition.

As much Jari Frogs

There are two species of frogs of the finger were found by LIPI researcher, Amir Hamidy, namely Leptobrachium Ingeri and Leptbrachium kanowitense. Both species are among the smallest in the genus.

Both species are categorized in emula complex species, L. nigrops. Molecular techniques are used to identify the species. If this technique is used, the diversity of species of frogs can be doubled.

Extinct Monkeys Found Back

Type monkey rediscovered is kind of gray langur (Presbytis hosei canicrus). Monkey was rediscovered by a team of researchers headed by Brent Loken of Simon Fraser University in Canada.

Two Types of Endemic Biak New Pinang

Two new types of nut found in Biak and Supirori. Both are endemic to the local area and each is given a name and Hydriastele Adonidia maturbongsii biakensis. These findings add to a wealth of world palm reaching 2500 species and 500 of them are

New Bamboo

The new species recently discovered by researchers from Mekongga bamboo LIPI, Elizabeth. This species has yet to be named but has unique characteristics, which grows creeping, stem diameter of 2 cm only, no fur but has a layer of wax.
