New swimming cave cricket species filmed


A swimming cricket was one of three "new species" discovered by a TV crew filming in South America.
The "unbelievable" insect find was captured on camera along with a no-eyed harvestman and a cave catfish.
The trio were found in a remote Venezuelan tepui, a type of table-top mountain in the region.
"We've only named about a million species of insects and there are almost certainly five to eight million undescribed," said Dr George McGavin.
The filming was part of a new BBC/Discovery Channel/Terra Mater TV co-production called The Dark: Nature's Nighttime World.
