New Species of Beetle Discovered in World’s Deepest Cave

The Krubera Cave, which is more than 2,197 metres (7,208 ft) deep, is the world’s deepest cave, which is located in Abkhazia, Georgia. Also known as the “Everest of the Caves”, it is home to the newest species of beetles discovered by Spanish researchers.

These six-legged cave beetles are called Duvalius Abyssimus, where only two specimens – a male and a female, have been captured. Scientists assume that these species have moderately adapted themselves to the underground life from the presence of eyes in the species, which is not present in the highly specialized cave species.

This is a great discovery as scientists are able to study how fauna co-exist in such unknown ecosystems found in geographical areas that are very difficult to access according to the Science World Report.
