A number of incredible species have been discovered in Southeast Asia’s Greater Mekong Region, one of them being a miniature fish: Borarus naevus. The  fish, which measures just 2cm in length, was spotted off the coast of Surat Thani in Southern Thailand. It is one of a host of new creatures found in the Greater Mekong region during the course of 2011. The tiny fish was named for the large dark blotch on the side of its body; “neavus” is the latin word for blemish.
