Taken from Sci & Tech Article

KATHMANDU, Aug. 10 (Xinhua) -- After a decade of research in the Himalayan region from Nepal to the far north of Myanmar, as well as southern parts of China's Tibet Autonomous Region, scientists have documented an amazing treasure trove of 350 new species of plants and animals, 94 of which were found in Nepal alone. ...

One of the most remarkable discoveries in Nepal was Heterometrus nepalensis, a scorpion new to the world discovered in the Chitwan National Park in the Terai plains in the south of the country.

This discovery is significant as it is the first scorpion ever to be discovered in the country and is given the name to honor the occasion, WWF-Nepal said.
