Today in obscure insect news, the "terrible hairy fly" has been rediscovered in Kenya.
Incapable of flight and partial to breeding in bat faeces, the fly is thought to live only in the bat-filled cleft of a single, isolated rock in the Ukazi Hills.
Mormotomyia hirsuta measures about 1cm long and, with hairy legs, looks like a spider, scientists said. It has non-functional wings that resemble miniature belt-straps, and tiny eyes.
Sounds (and looks) pretty terrible to me. But I'm always happy when our planet's biodiversity gets a win.
