<Phyllodytes magnus>, #NovaEspécie descoberta na #MataAtlântica baiana por #cientistas da UESC, @usponline e @UesbOficial. É a maior espécie do gênero, com ~40 mm (por isso o 'magnus') e vive em bromélias nas árvores! https://t.co/HjlZO2wMxh #biodiversidade #taxonomia #newspecies https://t.co/YqRK2MydkD
