  • The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “Scientists confirm new species of deep sea creature solely via video footage” – below is their description.

    Scientists have, for the first time ever, formally identified a totally new species in the deep sea.

    The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) formally identified the new species of Duobrachium sparksae – a strange, gelatinous species of ctenophore – solely on high-definition video footage captured at the bottom of the ocean.

    It took five years to have the gelatinous blob formally recognised as a new species.
