A new dead fish species from the Philippine island of Palawan has been named after its founder.
The species, called Basa fish and described in the latest issue of Science, is the first recorded living species of Basa, a deep-sea fish endemic to the island of Pangasinan.
It’s the second known species of basa in the region, after Basa angulanensis.
The Basa species was first described in a paper published in 2014, but it was the publication of the new paper that finally put it on the map.
The new species has an unusually small mouth and tail, but its scales are longer than those of many other basa species.
The scientists believe it has the ability to use the deep water as a breeding habitat, possibly helping to explain why Basa is more likely to spawn in deeper water.
It has also been found to have a high tolerance for temperature, and has been found on some reefs in the deep waters of Palavan.
Basa has been dubbed “the new reef fish” because it was discovered in the depths of the sea, and because of its small size.
Its discovery has spurred scientists to study the island, and to study other species of the deep sea.
The study also helps explain why the species has adapted to live in deeper waters, as well as why other deep-water species do not have such adaptations.
It is the second time Basa will be studied by scientists, after a similar study of the same species was done in 2013.
