Snail, gecko and carnivore in ‘top 10 new species’ 2014

Olinguito - Bassaricyon neblina

Olinguito (Bassaricyonneblina)

A top 10 list of species discovered in the last 12 months is topped by the olinguito (Bassaricyon neblina), a carnivore dwelling in the treetops of the Andes. This racoon relative caused a stir after a neglected specimen was first discovered in a Chicago museum drawer.
