Over 200 New Species Discovered in Papua New Guinea

This pink-eyed katydid lives in the forest canopy in Papua New Guinea. It is one of the over 200 new species discovered by the Conservation International expedition to the Muller Range mountains last year. See more of the new species of frogs, ants, spiders, mammals, and plants, and videos of the expedition at Conservation International. http://www.conservation.org/explore/asia-pacific/png/muller_range/pages/muller_range_png.aspx -Thanks, Lindsay Walter-Cox!

So cool! But, I think it was that they discovered "20" new species. OR maybe it is 200? Im just going by what MSNBC says.
