KUNMING - Scientists have discover a new terrestrial shrimp genus, with two species identified, during a China-Myanmar expedition on Mount Victoria in the southwest of Myanmar.

A paper on the finding was published in the latest issue of the international journal ZooKeys.

Since last year, the expedition, sponsored by the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), has led to the finding of several samples of the new genus, said Hou Zhong'e, co-writer of the paper, from the CAS Institute of Zoology.

The team has named the genus Myanmarorchestia Hou.

Mount Victoria is known for its diverse endemic mountain species.
