Well done, Neil! Both the finding of the animal and the further
observations.=20

And a gorgeous blog entry with a beautiful message. You've given a very
helpful thumbnail of the taxon _C. asheri_, building up from Andy's
investigations to the authors' and others' more recent research, all
leading to the resolution and description of the new species--thanks for
that.=20

Top-drawer work!=20
