UCR Scientist Rediscovers Insect Lost For 105 Years.

Adriean Mayor, a research associate in entomology, rediscovered the species in April during ongoing field research in California. Mayor said the beetle, Trichochrous kernensis, has only been seen once before, in 1913, when the five original specimens were collected near the town of Havilah in Kern County.

Always cool to find something like this, which I am sure was just hiding in plain sight.

Through the power of iNat, I hope more l
'Lost' species are rediscovered. Further, I hope
brand new, never characterized before, species are discovered.
