2011 brought 53 new species to Costa Rica
January 17, 2012

Among these 53 new species, the experts say most of them are mites, beetles, fruit flies, wasps, lice and nocturnal butterflies or moths.


Insects, fungi and plants are the organisms discovered in the Costa Rican forests during 2011.

Among these 53 new species, the experts say most of them are mites, beetles, fruit flies, wasps, lice and nocturnal butterflies or moths.

In the wasp group, a new scientific order was created: Dentalion, which groups 8 species.

The National Biodiversity Institute (INBio), in charge of the inventory, explained it’s too soon to confirm if these species are endemic, according to information provided by Univision.com

In Central America, 26 new types of insects, 19 kinds of plants and 8 species of fungi were discovered.

The biodiversity of the country includes 500.000 species, from which 75% can be easily seen because they are insects.

If you would like to know the new species that are part of Costa Rica’s natural beauties, our hotel is an excellent option from where you can arrange tours to national parks and natural reserves close to the Central Valley, and enjoy our great and well-known services.
