NUS researchers rediscover rare flower fly

Researchers from the Evolutionary Biology Laboratory at NUS, headed by Prof Rudolf Meier from the Dept of Biological Science at the NUS Faculty of Science, have rediscovered the Eosmallota singularis, a flower fly species that is even rarer than the wasp-mimic. Fewer than 10 specimens of this species had been found worldwide in the forests of Borneo and Malaysia.
