It's question time again: Is this your Thecacera sp. 2? Will it soon receive a specific name?

Thanks a million.

Thanks for this record. I don't think anyone is working on this family at present. These days naming new species just for the sake of it is not given a high priority amongst most researchers. We usually try and describe new species in the context of a broader revision of a genus or family. In that way the anatomy of various species can be compared and evolutionary relationships considered.
