300

Yep, you may have seen this announcement already but it's still incredible any way you look at it. Scientists discovered more than 300 species in the Philippines that are likely new to science, including dozens of new insects and spiders, deep-sea armored corals, ornate sea pens, bizarre new sea urchins and sea stars, a shrimp-eating swell shark, and over 50 colorful new sea slugs.

50 more Nudis to discover (amongst other things). It still amazes me that we spend more time on the exploring the stars than our own ocean. Theres still so much to see down there......
