Orchid You Not

In a world that is rapidly losing so many species of plants and animals, it is nice to be able to report the discovery, announced today, of 11 new species found in Vietnam.

The new species include a snake, two butterflies, and several orchids (one of which is pictured) not known to exist outside of the "Green Corridor" in the central part of the country.
