Two new species of Tambja

July 17, 2006
From: Bill Rudman

I have slowed down on answering identification messages so I have a chance of catching up on a backlog of new species - or fairly new species - and new fact sheets.

Here are a couple of new species of Tambja:
Tambja haidari
Tambja blacki

They are not the last of the Tambja species I have to prepare, but it makes me feel a little less guilty to get some posted. These are part of Marta Pola's continuing investigation of this group.
