Scientists have discovered the smallest free-living insect in the world, and its a species of featherwing beetle found in Columbia.
The recently discovered species is thought to be the smallest on earth, Scydosella musawasensis only grows to 0,325mm in length. It has a yellowish-brown, long oval body with antennae divided into 10 unique segments.
The tiny insect is the smallest to live on its own without depending on a host. It thrives in areas where organic matter, fungi, decaying tree logs, animal dung, and leaf litter are abundant.
Thankfully this is one bug that isnt found in Australia, but just to be safe, make sure your FreedomScreen is properly installed.
