Hi everyone,

I'm not sure if it's the right place to annonce this, (if not please forgive me and delete the post ) but last month was published in Nature the "discovery" of the largest tropical peat bog, in Congo* (People's Republic of Congo).

I think it's worth sharing it here considering the very peculiar fauna usually associated with peat bog... therefore it should host numerous interresting/new species of Cerambycids...

* I've also discovered, by reading the article, that there is some in other places in Africa, and Indonesia as well
